Description

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a woman who is facing the viewer. She is standing on a wooden deck that is attached to a house, part of which is visible in the right side of the image. She is leaning against the railing of the deck, which runs through the left side of the image. She is wearing a mid-calf length dress that has an all-over pattern of white, diamond shapes. Her arms are crossed in front of her chest and her proper right ankle is crossed over her left ankle. She has straight, shoulder-length hair. There are leafy trees in the background.
