This shot reminds me of a still from the set of a soap opera…..heavy dramatics on a poorly lit set. But with the lazy susan conference table, it’s sort of fun to try to figure out who is interacting with whom: the U.S., U.K., Russia, and China seem to be discussing something of world import while Germany gives France an austere stare.
