My eyes zeroed on a picture of a boy wearing a white t-shirt and black half-pants holding a trophy, giving a toothy grin, there was another boy on his right who looked slightly older, wearing black trousers and a blue shirt and a man in his late 40s perhaps, wearing a black suit standing the older boy's right and a beautiful woman in her late 30s weari
