The cabeceo from two perspectives

In Buenos Aires many of the most traditional milongas, such as El Beso and Cachirulo, have men and women seated in separate areas, for the purpose of cabeceo. Here are some intriguing photos from one such milonga showing the cabeceo from two perspectives - the masculine and feminine.

The top photo make me feel like I'm right there seated amongst the tangueras on the look out for a desired dance. I feel their focus and anticipation. As for the bottom photo - I think I recognise some of those guys! Notice the guy in the far right making his cabeceo very active and obvious, whereas the guy behind him is trying to look extra relaxed and subtle about it. There are many ways to cabeceo.
