Street Photography: Pecha Kucha Kiss

In one of my favorite scenes from Amélie, the narrator describes how the eponymous heroine loves looking at the faces of moviegoers when she is at the cinema (“Parfois, le vendredi soir, Amélie va au cinema. Elle aime se retourner dans le noir pour regarder le visage des autres spectateurs…”). Lately when I’ve gone to public events, I’ve turned my camera on attendees who are often as interesting as the main attraction. At this month’s Pecha Kucha on Grant’s Block, I caught this couple looking like characters in an old Italian film as the woman languidly kisses the man’s face. In reality, it was a peck, there and gone in a flash. Captured in a photo however, it feels like it stretches on forever.
