The 2nd Most Famous Picture of the Last Century
Lots of news and pictures last week of an event in Times Square celebrating 65 years since Victory in WWII. Couples recreated the famous kissing picture, second only to the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima in fame. They were posing underneath a huge statue of the kiss.
Here is my question. Is this the same one I photographed last summer in San Diego or did they make more than one? If this is the same one, how did they transport so large a piece from coast to coast?
I love the picture, the story and the commemoration of those happy Americans who won the war that changed the future. I cannot imagine what kind of world we would live in if Japan and Germany had won.
