Then suddenly, in a flash, I saw something white being grabbed. I turned around and clicked the moment the sailor kissed the nurse ... I took exactly four pictures. It was done within a few seconds.
Only one is right, on account of the balance. In the others the emphasis is wrong -- the sailor on the left side is either too small or too tall. People tell me that when I am in heaven they will remember this picture.
