18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Victory Pigeon

This photo was taken on November 7th, 2020, the day that it was officially announced Biden won the election. I was taking a photo walk with my best friend, Terri. There was joy and jubilation all over Brooklyn. We were in the Greenpoint neighborhood. We saw pigeons that seemed to be lifting up in celebratory flight as we passed by, and we stopped to take photos of them.
