Without looking at him she says: ‘There’s something I’ve always wanted to ask you.’  He places his hand gently on her back and draws her into the shade.  ‘Of course,’ he says.   And then they are gone. Some images just want to tell stories. They are Saul Leiter’s ‘tiny fragments’.     In this photograph the colours shout out, but it is the shadows that catch the attention. In the darkness of their ephemeral architecture it is easy to imagine confidences traded and secrets shared.
