During this young boy's day out to the lake with his toys, he was pictured here bent over picking up one of his play-pieces from the wet sand. Given his sun-exposure, sunscreen had been applied to his skin in order to prevent overexposure to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. However, he would have been further protected if he'd been wearing a darkly-colored shirt, as in the case with the child depicted in PHIL 14038 through 14042.
