second for years to come

< Previous | Next >



I have seen the phrase - in which I mentioned in thread title - in the sentence below in a English story book. Would you please explain and clear for me?

He came back with his camera. The Japanese girl looked back at him, unsmiling, as the camera clicked and recorded that second for the years to come.

Thank you in advance and Best regards

    'That second' means 'that moment'. The camera recorded that moment.

    'For the years to come' means 'for a long time'. The camera recorded that moment permanently.
