Backstory: While in Love Park the other day, I was watching this young couple sitting by the garish pink pond. They looked like they were in their own little world, and I’ll be honest: They had my rapt attention. It’s very rare to see young couples all boo’d up anymore. Anyway, after talking to and photographing a couple of other people , I made my way over to the Love sculpture, and took a few photos, including the one above.
Not too long after I walked over, the couple gets up and comes over, and asks me if I can take a photo under the Love sculpture using with what I’m guessing was her cameraphone. So after I took a few for her, I asked them if it would be alrite to take their photo for my series, and they agreed!! I added a portrait of this couple, Zuri and Andy (thank you), to the Portraits of Philadelphia series. Check it out!
