  •  Photographers are good observers (0+ / 0-)

    The guys there at the G8 are observing professionally, in the first place, looking for oportunities.

    •  It could also just be a fleeting moment (4+ / 0-)

      captured on a quick series of shots.

      For all we know, the moment likely lasted less than a second.  Is Obama turning his head?  How quickly? from the picture we can't determine that Obama is deliberately focusing on what people are speculating or it's in motion, as he steps backwards, which he seems to be doing.  If he isn't, I have no idea what he's doing with his left leg.

      Unless it was some lingering gaze, I think by the time you caught it w/ your eye, it would have passed, in which case you would likely have not one but probably several photos of the moment.  With only one picture, I'll chalk it up to seeing the Virgin Mary in a potato chip - it's just one of those things.

      The only thing I'm certain of at this point is that this is all a fairly vacuous topic.

      They take an awful lot of pictures. In the film days, they still took a lot of pictures, but with digital cameras they can take a whole lot more. Just keep snapping, and you'll get something useful.

      The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
