Subject: [Leica] PAW 31 - Crowd: -- "Cut off Gent"
From: pdzwig at (Peter Dzwig)
Date: Tue Sep 5 03:39:40 2006
References: <> <>

The point of the cut off gent is that SWMBO next to him looks like she is 
to give him an earful: but of what? Is she moaning about England's play 
(justifiable that day)? complaining about the cold (it was very cold)? 
him to get her a drink? Is she an Ireland supporter who has just realised 
they are in with a good chance of winning the championship? or what? We'll 
know unless her family are on the LUG!

As for him I couldn't have got more of him without fallimg backwards into 
row in front of me !! Cropping him out would have "cost" to0o much and lost 
object of her

Thanks to all of you for the comments,
