2. Photograph of a man wearing cowboy clothes and seated on a horse.
3. Photograph of a man, wearing shoes but no shirt, sitting on the stern of a boat. He is leaning against a flagstaff.
4. Vertical aerial photograph of a small bay and beach showing houses and roads of a coastal town. The upper left corner of the image is obscured.
