Untitled (Zachary, San Onofre State Park, CA April 2014) copyright 2014 Douglas Stockdale

A reclining boy on top of rocks and gravel. The actual location is visually ambiguous with few clues. Upon closer inspection there is what appears to be seaweed on the rocks, as well as some of the rocks have a sheen of wettness. The young man appears to be wearing a bathing suit and his beach sandals are still on his feet. His eyes are closed and his arms and hands oddly folded.

What is going on? Sunbathing? Resting? Or perhaps something else? How do you respond to this singular image?

Best regards
