I am sure many of you know what I am talking about and have that photo embedded in your mind. If you don't, just google it.
What makes me brings this up is that the faces of the two people were not easy to see and while many people have claimed to be the ones in photo, their identity is still a matter of dispute.
Flash forward to this week when another iconic photo was taken in Vancouver of what appears to be a couple making out on the street in the middle of a riot after the 7th game of the Stanley Cup Finals. In no time, with the help of the Internet, the two people in the photo were identified and interviewed.
And the photo wasn't what it seemed. It was not a moment of passion. The woman had been knocked to the ground by a police shield and was crying and the guy she was dating was consoling her and gave her a kiss just as the photographer snapped the photo.
Amazing that in this era of video, a photograph can still capture a lot of attention.
