This Photo of the Week is a reminder to take a stand. This image of a vibrant yellow flower was taken in Soweto, South Africa, earlier this year at the Mandela House. When I consider the namesake of the venue, he (Nelson Mandela) is the epitome of standing up for what you believe in. The thing I like most about this photo is the contrast of the foreground and the background. The stately flower commands attention, even amid all the action happening on the other side of those bars. It makes me thing of the saying, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
