The story behind Kiss in Time Square After WWII

The picture was taken just minutes after the US heard that Japan had surrendered to the United States. The Nurse did not know the Sailor that kissed her. The photo was not staged either it just happened. The Sailors name is unknown. The nurses name is unknown. The Nurse and Sailor get married later on. The photo was not staged and the happiness of the photo will live on forever. It is a symbol of greatness and happiness for the United States.

My Opinion

I really like this picture because it was staged it just happened. Alfred was just lucky to be there and to witness it. He just took the shot. I think the reason its unique is because they didn't know each other. Also because most people try to stage things like this t happen, this picture was taken on natural occurrences. I would not change a single thing on the photo its hard to get pictures like that where they just happen and you were lucky enough to get the photo.
