"Standing against the wall..."

Posted by Ann on November 24, 2005

I am interested in an opinion about the connotation of a phrase "Standing against the wall..." Does this evoke a picture of a person leaning a shoulder against the wall, or positioned with his back against the wall, or is there not enough to differentiate between the two?
