This is a black and white photograph of a man in a park being sprayed with water from an irrigation sprinkler. The man stands with his arms outstretched in the middle of a sidewalk facing one of the sprinkler heads and a spray of water extends diagonally above his head.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"MORNING SHOWER GOLDEN GATE PARK / San Francisco 1967 / I remembered this guy from art school and stopped to talk to him on Hippie Hill. He told me that he took an LSD trip a couple of days before and decided to go natural. He flushed his false teeth and contacts down the toilet. Now he was having trouble seeing and eating. Then, all at once the sprinklers came on and he ran screaming with joy down the hill for his morning shower. / I was on assignment with Nicholas von Hoffman who was writing about Haight-Ashbury for the Washington Post. This photograph appeared on the front page."
