You should know by now that IÂ appreciateÂ photography more than the next man since I’m a photographer myself. So I thought I’d put ya’ll on to one of the most timeless photos taken in the 1940’s taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt in New York CItyÂ when World War II ended.
This photo is called “The Kiss” where a young sailor is caught in the moment of kissing or “swooing” a young nurse. Even though you may think these two love birds have been at it for years, they never met before this picture taken. And its said that she slapped him immediately after he kissed her. Oh and its also said that he was kissing ever girl that he ran into so maybe that takes a little away from this photo. But regardless, its a timeless photo that did serve as a visual representation of the conclusion of one of the deadliest periods in world history.
