Portrait of the Queen

A classic. Congratulations to Ms. Leibovitz on a great portrait. A glimpse of a lost age of manners, decorum, dignity, and the stiff upper lip.

The entire setting, the pose, the look, the shadowed room, combined with the overcast sky combine to foreshadow the coming end of Britain.
Unfortunately, I can't get the picture to display. But click on the box - it's worthwhile.
