      This famous kiss photo was taken on V-J Day in Times Square. The photo was plastered all over newspapers and was seen as a symbol of a new era of peace, love and hope. The truth of the matter was that this soldier was kissing every woman in the square and this nurse in particular slapped the sailor. Photographer: Alfred Eisenstaedt. I love love this!! So sweet

      all-time favorite. Though, this image is not how it may first appear. The man is forcing the kiss (grabbing). Such fantastic revelry.
