54/365 | Troopers Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima

Today's photo pays homage to a photo taken by Joe Rosenthal entitled Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. The original photograph was taken on February 23, 1945.

 

Shortly after Rosenthal's photo was taken, it became one of the most significant and most recognizable images of the war. In fact, it has been said that this image is the most reproduced image of all time.

 

I hope I have done it some justice.

 

Enjoy!

 

This photo is the first of many images to come in my mini series Cloned Photos.
