Description

Black-and white-image of a young boy playing with a ball, which is the size of a basketball. The boy is standing in front of a brick wall, and his arms are raised up in front of his face, holding the ball just above head-level. He is smiling and gazing at the ball, and he has short, curly, light-colored hair. He is wearing no shirt, light-colored overalls that are mid-thigh length, and dark shoes.
