  • This couple, originally facing in opposite directions, waiting for trains running on opposite tracks, somehow struck up a conversation. I, sitting just a couple of feet away from them, had the impression that they were falling in love on the spot and were about to run off with each other.

    They were completely oblivious to everyone and everything around them.

    They didn’t even hear the distinctive sound of the Leica shutter, which sounds like a kiss.

    I wonder if she noticed his ring. I wonder if she was wearing one, too.
