On this day I set up my camera in a train station somewhere in Belgrade in order to catch the reflecting light that was bouncing from the floor to the ceiling. As I held my camera tight against a large column because of the slow shutter speed, a couple walked directly in front of me, embraced, kissed, and parted in separate directions. It was just enough time to snap one photo.
A serendipitous moment, yes, but I hope I won’t get sued like Robert Doisneau who took the famous photo, “Le baiser de l’hôtel de ville (The Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville).”
Shot with Tri-X film. Hand-held but pressed tightly against a large column because of the slow shutter speed of around 1/40 and f 8 or so. Digitally scanned with the Epson 4490 PHOTO at 4800 dpi.Buy A Print
