West Plains, Missouri

Fluid Innocence

Fifth Place

“Fluid Innocence”

Oak Street Beach, Chicago, Illinois

“Oak Street Beach is a place where Chicagoans go every summer to just get away and relax for a bit with friends and family. Its a place where human connections happen constantly under the hot sun of summer and cool waves of Lake Michigan. In this photo you can see the tranquil connection between a little girl and the rippling pool of water beneath her toes.”
