goodnight-i-love-you:    i-shouldletyougo:    dressedtilnine:    I love when moments like this get captured on film. I always wonder what became of the people in them.. I bet they wouldn’t have guessed that half a century later people would still be admiring them. And think how important that kiss must have been to the both of them, to go to all the trouble.
