THE  KISS  2009

Uploaded: October 25, 2009


I hurriedly zigzagged my way through the city streets Friday. It looked like it was about to rain. I saw the young lovers across the street locked in their embrace. I quickened my pace hoping against hope that their moment would last long enough for me to get the shot. I crossed Broadway against the light making my settings as I scurried along trying to be inconspicuous because that's what I do. Well I got my shot without even stopping. I was in a hurry. As it turns out I had enough time to set up a tripod. I glanced over my shoulder just before turning the next corner and their moment hadn't ended yet.

I can just seeing you, worming your way stealthily (on your belly?) through the streets of New York. (Or were you shuffling with a pushcart?).

Great story, and a great catch too! #1196282
