The Kiss

New Limited Edition Prints Available

Every week, a new print comes available.  It’s always a pleasure to make these available to collectors and the like.  Each of them is numbered to ensure each one is unique.  We keep a record of the original owners of these so there is trail, which you should also follow if you want to check on the authenticity of a work.  There are a lot of rogue printing companies out there, but just by purchasing via this link, you can be assure it is authentic.

This week’s print is “The Treetop Temple Protects Kyoto“. It’s one of my favorites from Japan, and I’m sure you’ll see why.


Daily Photo – The Kiss

I’m sure most of you recognize this from the famous photo in New York after the war. I’ve wondered if that photographer took hundreds of photos that day and all of them were horrible except for the famous one. I’ve had days like that! Anyway, I’d love to see all of his various work from that day to see what else he snapped up.

That photo has been recreated here into a giant statue in San Diego. It now sits in front of the huge aircraft carrer, which you can see in the distance, enshrouded in fog.

    The photo is great – the colors the subjects – only that the statue of the woman looks totally strange – like a puppet without a head. I am wondering if you used any filters on that to get this magenta?

    Is the original photo taken at this angle where you do not see the head of the girl or is the angle of your shot that makes it seem that the girl has no head? Otherwise nice composition.

    Oh wow! Cool shot – I saw this lady on the news once and she described that time in NY – yes, a good one for Memorial Day weekend!

    Thanks all…

    Birgit – that purple color came from those red and blue lights into the fog…

  • Eugene

    Excellent shot!

    In case anyone is wondering, the iconic photo this statue depicts is Alfred Eisenstaedt’s The Kiss.

    Amazing shot! I love all the work you do.

    Both beautiful photos. As to the first.. man, that is good. I have been to kiyomizudera more times than I can count, but that is the best view I have ever seen of it. It’s my goal to someday take a photo that good!! As much as I wish I could buy that for my wall, I just can’t afford your prints right now. But it is my new desktop wallpaper. Wonderful shot.

    Would you ever consider selling this photo as a print?
