    Smile at/in/from a distance

    Hi, all! I come across "distance" with different preposition combinations and I wonder how I could use them in their proper context? It seems that something is said to be in the distance and you are (watching or doing something) at/from a distance but I'm not so sure. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Yes, that sounds right.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
