Nelson Mandela's Fist

Nelson Mandela -- Viva...


The South African flag and reference to "Viva Madiba", a song written about Nelson Mandela, whose image is in the background on the front wall of the South African Embassy in Washington, D.C. ("Madiba" is also a popular nickname for the man). This photograph was taken a few days following Mandela's death on December 5, 2013. On the flag beneath "Viva Madiba" is written "You are truly free now. May you rest in peace -- OUR HERO."

Nelson Mandela 


This is a statue of Nelson Mandela famously raising his clenched fist into the air. It is at the South African Embassy in Washington, D.C., and was photographed a few days after Mandela’s death on December 5, 2013.


Thank you for coming to see my photographs, which are in the galleries on this page. My largest collection of photographs is of famous paintings and because of the high volume of these images there are two galleries for this work: 'Paintings A - L' and 'Paintings M - Z' (I have split the photographs into two galleries because too many images in one gallery slows down the speed of opening and moving around in that gallery). The second largest gallery is 'The Washington, D.C. Area' because this is where I have lived for over thirty years, and it is a great city to live in and photograph. I also have the following galleries: 'Sculptures', 'People', 'Cemeteries', 'Blooms Foliage Trees', 'A Blurred World' and 'All Other Photographs'. Again, thank you for stopping by.
