Black-and-white image of a white house with a dark tree trunk in the left side of the foreground. There are spotted, dark shadows on the ground in front of the house, created by the leaves of the tree, which are partially visible in the top right quadrant of the image. The house has one door and one window which are both the same shade as the house. There are three steps leading up to the door, and the window is covered with two hinged panels of wood.
