Ain't Love Grand!

Passion ran high this week in Canada...
After the Vancouver Canucks lost 4-0 to the Boston Bruins in the big ice hockey final, all hell broke loose on the streets!
Riots. Looters. Cars burnt. 150 people needed hospital treatment. Nearly 100 arrests.
And in the midst of all this chaos, more passion...a couple lying in the street locked in a kiss, oblivious to the charging crowds and baton-wielding riot police.
Photographer Richard Lam initially thought one of the pair was hurt: he took a few shots and then moved on. It wasn’t until he examined his photos later that he realised he’d captured a classic and surreal moment in time...
...and no-one knows who they are.

PS: 19 June 2011 - Now all can be revealed (check the "Comments" below...)!
