That Kiss

There’s a very famous World War II photograph of a couple (a nurse and a navy man) having a passionate kiss in the middle of Times Square, New York as they celebrated VJ Day. You’ve probably got a picture of it in your mind right now. Well, in San Diego they have a huge statue version of that kiss down on the harbour.

This photo doesn’t really give you the scale of the statue, in reality those figures are about 25 feet tall!

What did this image teach me?

This statue, known as Unconditional Surrender was not very well received by the people of San Diego, and actually a few days after I took this photo it was dismantled and sent away (having stood in place for about 5 years).
