Le Baiser de l’Hotel de Ville, Paris, 1950

I have seen this photograph for the first time couple of years back in Paris. It was printed in (a huge) portrait format and hanging on one of the walls of the Hotel Alane’s breakfast room. I was having croissant and orange juice and planning the day ahead with my love. We were in the honeymoon.

When we left Paris, we bought a print – landscape format this time, as souvenir. Once on a shelve or a wall, it turns that place into a home. Now it hangs on the wall of an attic with a view in Sydney, Australia.
