The roof of this house is bleached out in the picture, but there is one-- with two points and a chimney in between. The trees are akimbo with scrambling branches, hardened by sun and drought. The grass looks stiff and sharp. Three chairs in the picture, two occupied, one by a small barefoot boy and another by his grandmother. Their hands are in their laps. They are seated on the porch in front of the door to the house. The third chair is upright in the grass. It is an old picture. It seems a new house. There is no paved walkway in front of the house which probably means there is no paved road anywhere nearby. The boy is looking at the camera, his grandmother is looking at him. It seems quiet.
