    I'm not sure I understand this with "at" as a preposition:

    "Jane wasn't smiling. She was looking grim at various angles."

    Is it the same as "from various angles"?

    Thanks for your help

    I need more context to answer this. What is the source of your quote and what was happening before and after this?

    It's from a book called "My summer of Love, by Helen Cross. The woman in question is getting married, she's a tough character and is having a series of photographs. Then she leans forward and shows some of her breast for the last picture (but I don't think there's an relation here with my quote)....
