Couple Kissing while Others Look over the East River - South Street Seaport, New York City
With the three downtown East River Bridges in the background a couple is kissing for a souvenir picture in this street photograph from Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport, New York City. Occluded by the shade, another couple, more restrained, looks on while chatting. Indicative of what much of the kissing and chatting is about, a baby stroller takes a prominent position in the composition. Looking north up the river feels like the movement of time into the optimism of the future.
