|Before the kiss|
This was a most tender moment, one I am so pleased to have caught on film. We had been talking about the abundance of lovers who kiss publicly on the streets of Paris. Here, Jean leans in as if to give Marie Claire a kiss. I love her look of delighted anticipation. Did he actually kiss her? I honestly couldn't remember. Marie Claire maintained that he gave her a gentle peck.
Rest in peace, Jean.
