The man taking the photo is the son of the couple by the plane, who met during the war. She was a nurse and he wounded at Pearl Harbor. She would stay by his bedside during the long night hours, changing his bandages and holding his hand. Lending him a silent strength and courage while he healed. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months. Like any good romance, they fell in love.

Fast forward to today - a local airport has vintage planes from WWII. The man envisions his parents as young "kids" in the midst of a chaotic world at war. His father, about to be sent off once more, takes his lady for one last stroll and they have their photo taken - so that he may carry his sweetheart next to his heart as he returns to battle.

i really like everything about this photo except the choice of frame doesn't add anything for me. Still, 8, i like the selective desat here good way to express your title, I think your photo would still have the same impact without the 4 corners
