A black-and-white digital image of Taylor family children posing seaside on Martha's Vineyard. At the center of the photograph are a girl, at proper left, and a boy, at proper right, walking towards the camera. Both are wearing bathing suits and are barefoot. The girl is looking at something that she is holding in her hands, and the boy is holding a towel or blanket around himself and has his thumb in his mouth. Behind them in the background is another person walking in the opposite direction, a pedestrian railing, and a person leaning to the proper right, partially out of frame.
