"Unconditional Surrender" sculpture in San Diego

Val and Rick Piencka of San Diego strike the pose for their scrapbook next to J. Seward Johnson's sculpture "Unconditional Surrender." The larger-than-life sculpture sits next to the aircraft carrier Midway at the San Diego Embarcadero, is 25 feet high and weighs 6,000 pounds. It's a three-dimensional interpretation of a photo taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a sailor kissing a nurse in New York's Times Square on Aug. 14, 1945, following the announcement of V-J day.
