Man on a raft, The Tarn, Eltham, 1915


A lazy day

Detail of man, 18K

Who do you think this man is? Why do you think he is on a raft on the Tarn?

Could he be a park keeper, or a visitor? Does he live on an island in the lake? Is he a ghost, or a madman?

Imagine that you are the man in the picture. Write a short story about why you are on the raft, how you feel, and what you are going to do next!
