Story behind the photograph
Recently, one of the daily papers run a poll on the subject of the “public display of affection“. Interestingly it was not if manifestation of affection in public was appropriate but if it was only reserved for celebrities. Oh, please.
I see expressions of love all over the streets of Sydney. A kiss here or there, a hug, holding hands and often these glowing love eyes. It is perfectly normal and common. It has nothing to do with what your society status is or if you are celebrity or not. Just look at the young couple in this photograph. The young man carried his cheeky girlfriend through a whole city block. She seemed to be ecstatic and certainly joyful.
