Opinion - With all the talk last week of royal visits, and opinions on the place of our First Man, it seems that we're suddenly unsure as a country what political press photos are all about. Thankfully my years of looking at photos and pondering can help interpret even the most subtle of messages being put across.
Here's the Kiwi delegation keeping an eye on French President Emmanuel Macron, while he and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern look at Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters unexpectedly greeting everyone in perfect French. The man at the back is making a note "Winston knows French".
Here's the Prime Minister passing on the 18th soft toy kiwi she's received since announcing her pregnancy.
This was the moment the Prime Minister joked about New Zealand becoming a republic and then they all realised it was going to happen. First Man Clarke Gayford, as always, went to his happy place out at sea, even as the Duchess of Cornwall went to her happy place, being Queen.
This is the face you make when Theresa May says "you remind me of a younger me".
A throwback now to Sir John Key of Australia with always surprised to be Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
And here's Air New Zealand Ambassador Barack Obama with short term employer John Key (it's a 90 day trial).
Prime Minister Turnbull is remarking how similar the Kiwi and Aussie flags look while then Prime Minister Key swears in his mind.
And here we have 90's President Bill Clinton, remembering to keep his hands to himself while Prime Minister Jenny Shipley cocks her knee (just in case), and a possibly young Andrew Little waits with alcohol.
Back in 2011 President Obama and First Lady Michelle filled Bill English with so much hope that he briefly became his idealistic late 20's self...
..but six years later, only the intervention of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with her ability to keep things alive that should be dead, helped our Bill make it to retirement.
This is the moment US President Donald Trump realised he wasn't in Korea.
