Miles Scull Posted June 20, 2007 Share Posted June 20, 2007 (edited) Bilbo, hope this helps. Time constraints prevent more analysis at this point as the topic is fairly exhausted, moribund. Forgot one point: Thx, B. The black&white at the bottom appears to be a shot from Ed's vantage point made with a telephoto lens. So the objects seem much closer than they would appear to the eye. The red line pointed to by a yellow arrow shows the top if the picket fence. The cars shown here: would have been parked in a similar pattern on Nov. 22, 1963. On that day there would have been other cars parked behind the seen cars further back in the parking lot. From Ed's view point the view of cars that would have been parked next to the single white car (which appears to be parked at the steam pipe) is seen here: The other cars would have parked on both sides of the white car & also behind the white car ranked back from it at various distances The view on that day would have been a solid block or screen of cars of the same height at least as the height of the white car. This blocking screen would have allowed a view of a sniper at the Holland spot which would have shown only shoulders & head. This view would be at a distance of about 265 yards, or more than 2 & 1/2 football fields. If the sniper had been leaning on & over the fence, with his back turned to Ed (as Ed reports was the case), then Ed could have seen the rifle only as the sniper fired & turned back away from the fence, as Ed indeed says that he at that moment (the turn) & only then did he become aware that the man had a gun. One problem here. The sniper after firing would want to hide his rifle immediately. He would want to quickly pull it down to a point below the top of the picket fence, well below & thus out of Ed's sight. The sniper would not have held the rifle at port arms as Ed pantomimes & begin a stately march off toward the steam pipe through the steel of impeding cars blocking the march route. Ed would not have known how the sniper held his rifle because Ed could not have seen it as it was quickly secreted into a car trunk or broken down on the ground at the Holland spot. Bilbo, there you are again. Sorry, no time to waste on silly sophistries, the staple of your posts. Best thing to do is to simply avoid replying to your posts, thus avoiding conflict. Will do. Hope you avoid replying to mine. That's good, now... Edited June 25, 2007 by Miles Scull Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
