Photographer's Note

As I passed by the Crown Fountain in Millenium Park in Chicago, this kid just sat like this for a long time. In fact, I was there for at least 10 minutes; he was there before I got there and was there when I left. He had found "the zone"--that time when the mind shuts all out except for the experience at hand.

See some of the notes below from commenters; they have good ideas as to why this boy would do this. I can think to my own life and times when I've abandoned all outside stimuli for just one sensation.

Millenium Park is a wonderful place to explore. The Crown Fountain, here pictured, not only has falling water, but also has huge faces on video behind the water that are quite stunning at night.
