Unstretched and unframed.

A little girl in a red cape with hood and white boots walks under a green umbrella in the rain to school. She carries a brown bag in her right hand. There is brown grass off the path and logs in front of a barracks on the lower right. A watchtower is visible behind it. Brown trees provide a backdrop under a grey sky.
