V.J. Day Times Square

    Prev Next

    A Lego recreation of Alfred Eisenstaedt's 1945 photograph "V.J. Day Times Square".

    Original : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Legendary_kiss_V%E2%80%93J_day...

    Setup shot here ... www.flickr.com/photos/balakovsetup/2321704830/

    I'm not sure Lego make any real sailor minifigs, the best I could managed was this airline pilot. The girl is a nurse minifig :)

    Print available on Redbubble.
