Poopsie the poodle

Post by Frankymole »

One of these photos of Diana and her beloved Poopsie are reversed. But which one?

The men's lapels look right in both photos, I'm confused.

Aren't they symmetrical?

Poopsie's eye marking isn't, and it's reversed in one photo.

Macnee's waistcoat buttons look the right way round in the black and white photo; they aren't visible in the colour photo, so I guess that is the one that is reversed. (Bruce Forsyth's buttonhole in his lapel is also not visible, so that's probably his right lapel that has been reversed to look like his left.)

There's also a hint of what may be a wristwatch on Macnee's wrist in the B&W photo, though from that angle it is unclear.

I've flipped the colour one to see if their faces look more normal (human faces are not symmetrical):

It looks like the pic with Brucie is definitely reversed.

Hmm, on other pics, Poopsie has the dark marks around BOTH eyes, so it may just be the way the hair falls.

Man's lapels - left over right. Pretty sure Poopsie gets gunk under both eyes, like most poodles.

I can't see anything going over anything else?

I mean where the buttons are, left always over right. You can see it in the waistcoat and Steed's suit lapels.

I can't see any buttons in the colour one. Maybe I need my eyes testing.
