Did you happen to see Annie Leibovitz's new portrait of Elizabeth II today? I really liked the photo. As I mentioned last week, (or was that on Thomas's blog?) I am fairly indifferent to the royal family - I tend to think they'd be better off if we were a republic because the poor buggers could lead a normal life, but I have no strong feelings about them either way in general. However, as a fan of some of Annie's photos - I particularly like the Whoopi Goldberg, the John Lennon (of course) and the stripy guy (who was he again?) so I took a look at the new Queen thing. I really like it. The sinister sky outside, the very regal Queen - I think she's captured something very timeless there.
