Description

Black-and-white image of two men on an asphalt road. Both men have short, dark hair. One man is lying on his back and he is wearing a black, leather vest that is open. His proper left arm is stretched out above his head and his right arm is raised slightly, leaning against his face. He is wearing black pants and black shoes. The other man is seated, straddling the man's left leg, and he is drinking from a can. He is wearing a metal chain around his forehead and a black leather jacket with thick, white text on the back, of which a "C" is visible. He is wearing black pants and dark boots with a metal buckle. There is an open, canned beverage in the bottom of the image, next to the men.
