I took the photo yesterday of Her Majesty Queen Victoria before one of the entrances of the South African parliament. I sought to get a photograph of the bust of President Nelson Mandela, at another entrance. However, his visage was obscured by two sets of heavy iron bars, which were fronted by police officers. OBSERVATION: It might not be correct to say that this is symbolic of what our society has become -- but symptomatic. One may see a photo of the Mandela bust here: Mandela Bust Unveiled.
