1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
The Space Shuttle discovery on display in the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

"I visited the Udvar-Hazy Center while I was in the Washington, D.C. area on other business," says Cashore. "It was my first time seeing a space shuttle up close, and I was more impressed with its size than I thought I would be. The symmetry of the grid-work on the ceiling caught my eye, so I tried laying flat on my back on the floor. Luckily the Museum wasn't busy at the time."
