The Kiss, USS Midway and Sunset

    Silhouette of 'The Kiss' a 25ft tall statue of the famous photograph taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt during the VJ Day celebrations in Times Square in 1945. I love this place in downtown San Diego.

      Beautiful work! Not Eisenstaedt tho! It was a navy photographer shooting next to him. They could not get clearance for the other from Corbis.

      WOW! I never knew that, the photo is always credited by Time Life to Eisenstaedt.

      Thanks for the comments Ben :-)
