Kiss of life – romance isn’t dead

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.

    1. 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.
