Black-and-white image of a sidewalk, from a slightly diagonal perspective. In the foreground, in the bottom of the image, there is an ice cream cone on the cracked sidewalk, next to a puddle of melted white ice cream. In the middle ground, on the left side of the image, a woman who is visible from behind, her shoulders cut off by the top of the image, is walking away from the ice cream cone. She is wearing a black, sleeveless shirt, tight-fitting white shorts, and sandals. There is a line of cars along the sidewalk, cutting across the top of the image.
