    When they sent the order in for a sign language interpreter, the employment agency thought they said Third Base Coach.

    3) No one today would listen to a request by a head of state not to publish unflattering images.

    4) Ironically, the US press is criticizing the Obama administration for basically kicking press photographers out of the White House and many events. They have WH staff photographers take the pictures, which they then distribute. (e.g. White House Transparency Is 'Orwellian Image Control' - Business Insider)
    All fine points, except BI is a CT caliber blog.

    A second in time while the crowd was singing and dancing and laughing and celebrating he posed with another PM. The photographer that took the snap said moments before Michelle had been engaged and in the moment of lightness ... Obama went along with another head of states request.

    So much amazing and historic significance of that day and this is the best infotainment can come up with ... pathetic.

    Even ignoring that important context, which you did without hesitation, BTW, it's just a picture with two heads of state, it's no big deal.
    Exactly, and it wasn't even a "funeral". It was a celebration of Mandela's life, with lots of singing, dancing, a live band, etc. Obama isn't actually "doing" anything beyond looking at what appears to be a smart phone held by the Danish Prime Minister, as was the UK Prime Minister Cameron. We have no idea what was on the screen of that phone, and if there was any picture-taking, the Danish Prime Minister was doing it!

    The pettiness of political finger-wagging has sunk to kindergarten proportions. It's embarrassing to actually be an adult these days.

    It’s almost as if photographers go out of their way to present isolated images of political figures ...
    Not only politicians any time as photographers we are looking for the decisive moment in a 60th of a second
