Street Scene


View across an intersection of a man standing at the corner entrance of an untitled shop. Down the sidewalk on the left a young boy leans over to talk with another boy sitting on the steps of a store with display windows. There are rolls of fencing mesh stacked in an alley along the side of the store.
