Black-and-white image of a young girl standing in a street, her face turned away from the viewer. She is looking at two dogs that are standing in the top right quadrant of the image, near the street curb. One of the dogs is slightly larger, and light-colored. The other dog has large spots. The girl has straight, jaw-length, light-colored hair. She is wearing a knee-length dress that is made of a material decorated with a floral pattern. She is holding a small bouquet of flowers in front of her chest.
