Photographer's Note

This is the Praça da Batalha, Batalha Square, in the Portuguese city of Porto.

The 18th century church is called Igreja de Santo Ildefonso, but while I wanted to use it as a background for the photo I was mainly interested in the people standing by the fountain in the square.

It was to be just another street shot and I don't think I actually noticed that a little boy was jumping to the ground during the split second when I took the photo.

But here he is, hanging for ever in the air. He's been there for more than 27 years now, since this happened in late summer of 1984.

I scanned this from a Kodachrome slide.
