Thereʼs nothing like the sound of a donkey braying on your wedding day. You can practically read the brideʼs lips saying, “Hey! Cut it out!” In other words, this is an image that communicates all thatʼs needed and then some to make us show a few teeth in a smile.
Itʼs a juxtaposition thatʼs hard to beat, the young boy likely murmuring ick or yuck as he shields his eyes and mind from the passionate kiss. But the moment would also work even without such playfulness. Itʼs already imbued with strength as the crowd reacts to the traditional moment. But you must admit itʼs even better with this boyʼs pained experience. For him, a moment never lasted so long.
Wonderful color and richness. The bride and groom's name and date are framed by all that richness.
Dignity found in details does not happen everyday. I pondered a long while looking at this image and delighted in the textures of a passing era, combined with a present moment. There are many details featured here.
This would still be a lovely moment of the bride on her wedding day but the child, in the background, wiping away her tears elevates this photo to another plain. I also like how the room decor in front of the curtain seems to mirror rivulets of tears. It’s a beautiful image where the subject becomes the entirety of the image.
Spectacular use of light makes this a winning frame.
