13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience

My wife spontaneously signed herself and I up for a welding class. We had never welded before, but were excited to try new things. That's what it's all about - new, different experiences, getting slightly out of your comfort zone, and doing your best. That's the American way. This is a picture of my first ever weld, and I'm proud of it.
