Pucker up, Vortex readers. It's the Battle of The Kiss today.
In one corner, French photographer Robert Doisneau's "The Kiss". Taken in 1950 near the L'Hotel de Ville in Paris his images "presented a charming vision of human frailty and life as a series of quiet incongruous moments."(Robert Doisneau's Encyclopedia of Photography, 1984)
In the opposing corner, random kiss for which I have no information. Contrived as it may be, it is visually stunning. Let's call it "The Kick." Rumor has it, this leg extension is rarely a reflex but began under Old Hollywood's strict Puritanical rules that actresses were always to keep at least one foot on the floor to prevent any hanky panky. Many chose to push the boundaries and have only one foot on the floor.
