Description

Black-and-white image of a man and woman in a grassy area. The man is seated, leaning against a treetrunk, and his arms are crossed, resting on a woman's head. The woman is lying in front of him and holding a cigarette in her proper right hand. The man is wearing a black, leather jacket and he has dark, straight hair that is parted on the right side of his head and combed back. The woman is wearing a helmet and a dark, long-sleeved shirt under a denim vest. She is wearing tight, black pants and light-colored boots. Her left let is stretched out in the grass and her right leg is bent.
