Welcome to a new DipNote feature: Photo of the Week.

“Photo of the Week” showcases images taken by State Department personnel around the world and/or featured on Department websites, blogs, and social media sites.

For this week, the honors go to Press Attache Sharon Hudson-Dean, at U.S. Embassy Pretoria, for capturing the spirit of fans of the U.S. National Soccer team as they played against England. World Cup fever hit a new high this week, as reported here:

What makes a picture a Photo of the Week? Selected images may capture one's attention by telling a story or conveying a mood. Don't just take our word, though; let us know: did we get it right? Which photos “took you there”?
