Also in that picture of Harry, the reflection you can see clearly in the window is of what is an obscene gesture in the UK (not sure it translates to Americans though). More of the shade?
Oh, is that an obscene gesture?
Damn, apparently it is.
I had noticed the photagraphic emphasis of that gesture, but i was thinking it was an “allegory” of duality or something like that.
Thinking of it, it is a duality, in a way. Harry is offering a symbol of peace, but at the same time he’s saying
"fuck you"(and actually the obscene gesture is the one in the light)
From Wikipedia: The insulting version of the gesture (with the palm inwards) is often compared to the offensive gesture known as “the finger”. The “two-fingered salute”, also known as “The Longbowman Salute”, “the two”, “The Rods”, “The Agincourt Salute”, and as “The Tongs” in the West of Scotland and “the forks” in Australia, is commonly performed by flicking the V upwards from wrist or elbow. The V sign, when the palm is facing toward the person giving the sign, has long been an insulting gesture in England, and later in the rest of the United Kingdom; though the use of the V sign as an insulting gesture is largely restricted to the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. It is frequently used to signify defiance (especially to authority), contempt, or derision.
In case, we do know whom the defiance is directed to
