Subject matter
In this photograph, two boys are pictured just as they are jumping off a porch of a house. The boy on the left is stepping off, while the boy on the right is leaping, with legs stretched and hands raised. Their features are blurred and barely discernable due to the motion. The house from which they are jumping from appears derelict; its roof is crooked and it is missing window panes.
