Where am I?

This is the only picture I have seen so far of those attending the speech in Westminster Hall by President Obama and where I can see the back of my head.  Anyone with a few minutes to waste is invited to enlarge the picture and see if they can locate me.  A clue: I am sat at the end of a row with an Archbishop sat in front of me and a Baroness sat behind me.

    It’s tricky, even from the high resolution version found on Flickr. The picture’s not clear, otherwise it should be easy to spot either of the two archbishops!

    I reckon, as you look at the picture, you right of the central aisle in the second block of seats back, four rows from the front.

      Argh. I had to meddle with HTML code, didn’t I? That link was supposed to extend only up to the comma (there’s also a leftover “of the” at the beginning).

        T_DOW (your gangsta rap name?),

        It makes a really impressive looking link however…

      The Duke of Waltham: Welcome back and well done. Once one locates the two Archbishops, one can work out where I am.

      • The Duke of Waltham says:

        I do not like giving the impression of trying too hard to impress, Mr Summers…

        I also do not like rap music. Although, I must say, I have been thinking of something more along the lines of “Da Duke of ‘ham”.

        My Lord, when I commented above I had not yet watched the entire video. I did see, later on, President Obama greet both the Archbishop of York and Your Lordship, thus conclusively confirming my secondment (i.e. before your confirmation). I did not expect the hand-shaking to last fifteen minutes, but an incredulous suspicion entered my mind when Mr Obama’s speech ended around the forty-minute mark in a video lasting one hour…

  2. Right of the aisle, second block of seats, four rows from the front. You’re on an aisle seat in front of a lady wearing light blue clothing and I think red glasses!

    This is you shaking Obama’s hand. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7163355/nortonobama.png
