If you go to San Diego (and I really think everyone should, at least once - it's a beautiful place), particularly soon, take time to see a remarkable statue called Unconditional Surrender, which should look familiar. It's based on the famous photograph called VJ Day in Times Square (you can read about the photo's remarkable history and after-life here), and it's currently standing in San Diego near the U.S.S. Midway, the former aircraft carrier that has become a floating museum on the city's waterfront. The statue recreates the moment when a sailor smooches an unsuspecting nurse.
The statue is several times life-size, and easy to spot from a distance. When we went by one morning, Nick asked his parents to recreate the pose.
Here is what we came up with!
