As some of you might know, I am a WWII fanatic. I love history more than photography lol. This statue was created based of a photograph that was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt. A US Navy Sailor kisses a random woman on the streets of New York. This soldier was returning from war which had ended on 14 August 1945, the day Japan surrendered. The photograph was published in Life magazine and became one of the most famous images of the 20th century. This statue is located in Sarasota, Florida.
