Kiss of life – romance isn’t dead

A couple kissing. The man is looking at his mobile phone


My New Year’s resolution to post at least twice a week went to pot in the first week of January! As Mark Twain said: “New Year’s Day: now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving Hell with them as usual.”

It seems I did just that. I blame it on the lurgy. But now that I am fit and well again and ready to post, this is a photo that I took at the end of 2013 that I have been wanting to share for a while. I caught this couple on Villiers Street (down the side of Charing Cross Station). I love that she still has her cigarette in her hand and he will be back on his phone in a moment.

Is it romantic? Or is it a comment on the state of romance these days?

I have captured a few of these moments before on the South Bank and with a shot in Peckham that became an award winner. They never fail to amuse.

    • Yes. You wonder was he texting or on Twitter or something like that and she grabbed him? Or is pausing between texts for a quick snog the way that romance is conducted these days? ;-)

  1. Great shot. I’ve raced along that walkway and never thought to look down, shame on me! I learned to look down when I lived in a flat above a sweetshop in Brighton, years ago.
