Boys at lower right

So much to look at in this photo, but I can’t take my eyes off those three boys in the lower right, on the wooden pier. One lounges casually, one is caught in motion as he insouciantly leans forward, and the third boy appears to be yanking himself backwards. Whatever else is going on in the grown-up world of construction and engineering, these three young fellows are the focus of the photo for me.
