Horizontal. Young woman at bottom left and young man just behind her takes up right half of photograph. She looks out beyond photographer and smiles. He looks down and smiles. Her hair is light brown, parted on the side, pulled back, highlighted by the sun. His hair is short, curly and darker. He has no shirt on. We see the straps of her top. Behind her in the distance is a building with balconies.
