Caption in need of help?

AP photographer Carolyn Kaster shot a campaign photo of Vice President Joe Biden Sept. 9, apparently showing him getting very friendly with a female biker at a diner in Seaman, Ohio. But was he? Here’s an account of the encounter from a Washington Post blogger. Should the AP caption have said more about what preceded this photo — and where the woman was actually sitting?

Perhaps the photographer could have taken the photo from a different angle, which would make it more clear that the biker is not sitting on Biden's lap. Since the publication chose this photo taken from this particular angle, I think they should have put more information into the caption to explain the situation.
