Kissing Couple

I love this picture so much!

Kissing Couple

The full picture can be found here along with many photos of the Vancouver riots.

The amazing thing is the couple has already been identified. From CBC:
EXCLUSIVE: Vancouver riot’s ‘kissing couple’ tell their story
“Scott Jones says he was just trying calm his girlfriend down after they both had been hit by Vancouver police when the now-famous photos of them lying in the street and kissing was taken in the midst of Wednesday night’s riot.

“They started beating us with the shields, like trying to get us to move,” Jones told CBC News in an exclusive television interview Friday.

“We weren’t being aggressive towards [police] or anything like that. But eventually they passed over us. And that’s when we were on the ground. She was a bit hysterical afterwards, obviously, and I was just trying to calm her down,” said Jones, 29, an Australian who’s been in Canada for six months.”

The interview with the couple was so cute. To me this picture represents that in the midst of violence and madness love will triumph. Maybe I’m putting too emo a spin on it but the pic really moved me. Just beautiful! Kudos to the photographer who captured it.
