Stolen Kiss

Photo by contributor Nat, a 70-year-old man who has been interested in photography since he was a kid. He has suffered from chronic depression for many years. Usually the loss of a loved one, rejection, or anything that triggers feelings of low self-esteem will lead to a challenging time for him. Lately, he is rediscovering the joy of the act of photography, and waiting for that moment that tells a special story to the casual observer.

About this photo: “‘Stolen Kiss’ was taken on the Staten Island Ferry in the 1970s.”

    Great photo – and I love that it was taken on the ferry, which I used to take to work. Never too late!!

    Wonderful candid composition. I like how the doors frame the couple. Reminds me of a photo Vivian Maier would take on the street 🙂
