Bazar Bisou

Doisneau elevated French kissing to an art form, but he held no monopoly on romance...and the endless parade of lovely Parisian moments continues to this day.

This couple met up in front of our lens in a flurry of passion near the landmark Bazaar de l'Hotel de Ville on the bank of the Seine. Capturing the amour felt a bit invasive, but it was so genuine, heartfelt and beautiful that admiration -- rather than voyeurism -- was the motivation.

We all want to feel loved and share an embrace in Paris: if you've been lucky enough to experience the feeling, relive it with this image...if you haven't yet partaken, let this moment suffice for now.
