Since I’ve been looking into Arnold recently, I thought some of you might want to get in on the action. 

This shot ran on Yahoo News the same day they ran photos of his helicopter ride to survey storm damage near Los Angeles.  This picture was taken in Tokyo in November.  The caption had no other information except to say that Schwarzenegger announced he would be returning to Asia again in March.

How would you read this picture?
