The image showed a woman in a white top, jeans and heels, sat on a bench stroking the hair of a man who was lying down with his head in her lap.
The photos had been taken by a Google mobile camera at Puente de los Suspiros de Barranco [Bridge of Sighs of the Ravine], in Lima.

The unnamed couple later divorced, according to local news media.
