Photographer's Note

Here you see a reflection of the Old State House in central Windhoek. The photograph was taken from the grounds of the Dutch Reformed Church. It is practically impossible to get close to the building as it is surrounded by high walls and the entrance gates are under 24 hour guard and the reflection in the windows of a commercial building affords the best view I managed to find without being arrested!

The site of the State House was once graced by the residence of the German colonial governor, but that was razed in 1958 and replaced by the present building, which became the home of the South African administrator until Independence. Today it serves as the official residence of the Namibian Prime Minister.
