I think she is just window shopping and seems interested in something she saw (indicated by 3 fingers, and half spoken word, like "see?") The guy doesn't want her to look and fall for whatever she saw and now she must have one of those. She is most likely holding her purse in her right hand....

OK. So you were there. What was the context of the shot? -- Victor

Hmmm ... I see that this is a case for study of difference between male and female perception ... Many thanks for comments

That is not what I see at all! What I see is a loving couple. The angle of the girl's body toward the guy shows she has no intention of leaving. Also, her guy's hand is in a very loving posture, almost as if he's about to caress her. OTOH, look at the girls' left hand. Why is she extending her fingers like that? My guess is that she's waiving at someone. The guy is too involved with the girl to notice. -- Victor

Yes you're right in the caption, Alexeig. The body language of the girl with her face turned away, suggests that she wants to leave. His hands are like those of a prison keeper.
