    Cool describing a picture

    Hi!

    When we describe a picture, what's the right tense to use?:

    "The man says he's happy. He takes his friend's arm".

    Or

    "The man is saying he's happy. He's taking his friend's arm."

    Thank you!

    Re: describing a picture

    You can use either tense.

    In fact you can mix them up.

    "The man is saying he's happy. He takes his friend's arm".
