Romantic Photos Capture Candid Moments of Love Between Couples in Public

Love is a beautiful thing. Kisses stolen here and there, in public or in private–it is the simple moments of affection that warm our hearts. Street photographer Mikael Theimer delves into this subject with his candid shots of "lovebirds caught right in the act." Taken on the streets of Paris and Montreal, these spontaneous instances of shared emotion are part of an ongoing project titled Street Love, and are enough to inspire the romantic in any of us. 

Theimer moved to Montreal from France on something of a whim. Picking up a camera was a similar type of story, as spontaneity seems to be a reoccurring theme with the young artist. He went on to create a street photography page inspired by the famous Humans of New York project with some of his friends. After this endeavour gained momentum and publicity, Theimer continued to pursue photography as a career and has never looked back.

His simple monochromatic images focus on the people he encounters on the streets. His portraits explore the ability to connect his audience with one another around the world, by highlighting split seconds of genuine emotion and humanity that everyone can all relate to. ”I just like seeing people in love, I find that beautiful and pure,” he explains to Huffington Post. “For a moment, nothing around them matters. I like to focus on the good within the human race. The more you see of it, the more you want to be a part it.”

Japanese Twitter user @thumb_tani (aka Tanu) has mastered the art of balance. He uses his keen sense of equilibrium to create small, fascinating sculptures from carefully-positioned coins. Although many of us have probably attempted this same sort of coin stacking, Tanu takes these arrangements to a whole new—and totally epic—level. Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
