Weekly Photo Challenge : Community

The City of Cape Town hosted a memorial event “A life celebrated” at the Cape Town Stadium and invited members of the public to pay tribute to the life of Nelson Mandela. The ceremony held on 11 December, featured performances by Annie Lennox, local bands Freshlyground, Johnny Clegg, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and many others. The event turned out to be one of the most memorable at the stadium where a multi-racial, multi-class crowd sang and danced together, united as a people with one single purpose, to pay tribute to the man that made the impossible, possible. Truly a unique, and moving occasion, and indeed a privilege for those who managed to secure a ticket. I was fortunate enough to be given a ticket by someone outside the stadium, and was able to join the thousands and pay my respects to our first democratically elected President. Community is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge, this week, so images from the event are my reponse to the prompt…………….the journey continues………..

  1. Thank you oh so much for the incredible photo’s . Here in CA, USA we only got to see what was televised and in so many way’s it was impersonal. The emotions we felt were not, we grieved with the world. Your phot’s are so beautiful and the emotions of the moment come through! Thank you so very much, you’ve shared so much.
