The Kiss of a Century

I think this is so neat!

We've all seen this famous kiss, first debuted as the cover for a 1945 edition of Life Magazine. It is an icon for that era, and a splendid piece of photography.

The photo was originally taken in Black & White by Alfred Eisenstaedt.

But recently, a Reddit user ... "mygrapefruit" ... took the opportunity to color the picture by using old postcards and common sense for tone and color schemes, giving it a whole new life! And bravo, I must say!

Times Square, New York. 1945. Hello Nurse! What a moment in history. :)
