What's in there?

Just came across this photo from last summer.  For my non photographer friends this scene is fairly common at certain events.  We usually refer to a situation like this as a 'scrum'.  As in a rugby scrum when the two teams link arms and charge at each other and fight for the ball.  But instead of a ball, it is a photo subject.

What makes it unusual however is just how orderly it is.  That's because it is held at a place that normally hosts a lot of media, so they do their best to accommodate.  No battling to talk to the subject, the subject comes to a few of them then everyone else files around.  The venue even supplies extra step ladders which is great.

A scrum, but not really.  More like a swarm.

Still reading?  Curious to know who they are talking to?
