    Pride / self-satisfaction

    This expression was more of a challenge I think. We have to bare in mind that still images are missing the context of the image, whereas videos tend to include (at least more) of the context leading up to a still image. I think smug, arrogant, pride, satisfaction, contentment – and even a sniff suggestion – can all fit into this image quite nicely. How I encourage people to interpret images is to start saying what the person might be thinking or feeling – and these are perfect examples. If we start trying to condense them down into smaller categories, we can reduce groups of words such as “smug and arrogant” into contempt.

    With that being said, contempt was the main expression that shone through for me.
