Levitt is one of my favorite photographers, but I wasn't familiar with this photograph. When I look at this, I think: what was the little boy's motivation? I don't think it was malice, or sexual, I think it was simple curiosity.

It's difficult (at least for me) to remember the attitudes of childhood. Just today I heard a young child say with great pride: "I'm stepping on your shadows!" to his mother....

Notice I say nothing about framing here, or the rules of thirds, or composition. I'm astonished Levitt captured this "decisive moment" at all...
