I see kind of a vanishing point of the five people all going the way up; it is where the couple is, the only people going down the way. The configuration produces a fugacious expectation and suspense which – as all people are moving – very soon will come to nothing. We tend to smile about situations like this one – after all, a joke, as Kant defined it, is the dissolution of an expectation into nothing. Which leaves the question whether the photo also is something dissolving into nothing at a close look.
