This photograph is a portrait of a young woman named Janet. She leans over a partition wall, presumably part of the store-front of a bakery. Her chin rests on her arms while she holds a large pretzel limply in her hands. She looks at the camera directly, with a small smile suggesting contentment. The image is tightly framed and cropped: the opening she leans out from is framed by a post to the right and a large model of a pretzel hanging from above. Sunlight illuminates the features of the image frontally, while the partially visible space of the interior is left in shadows.Physical Description
