Kiss Statue in the early morning - San Diego Fine Art Photography by David Christopher
The iconic, and now famous, Kiss Statue in San Diego standing 25 feet tall, proudly on the Embarcadero. This 25 foot statue has become a famous San Diego landmark, one that millions of visitors come to see every year. Located adjacent to the USS Midway along the Port of San Diego’s Greatest Generation Walk, which lines the downtown waterfront and the beautiful San Diego Unified Port, it's reminder that San Diego’s military heritage, and all the men and women who serve our nation in uniform, are cherished by not only the locals, but millions visitors from all over the world as well.

"Unconditional Surrender is a series of sculptures by Seward Johnson resembling a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt, V–J day in Times Square, but said by Johnson to be based on a similar, less well known, photograph by Victor Jorgensen. The original statue was first installed in Sarasota, Florida, then was moved to San Diego, California, and New York City, New York. Copies have been installed in Hamilton, New Jersey; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; and Normandy, France."
