Even the angels have selfie sticks

Actually it is the Angel with the Sponge by Giorgetti, one of the series of Angels with the Instruments of the Passion on the Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome circa 1660s. If you want a selfie stick, there are a lot of vendors on the bridge. (Dome of Saint Peter's in the lower right)

Lake Louise inlet stream and delta
#flickr #photo #LakeLouise #Banff #travel  
Sand and gravel carried by the glacial outlet stream are deposited forming this delta at the end of Lake Louise. The finer rock flour is carried into the lake resulting in the emerald colouring for which the lake is famous. When I'm hiking around Lake Louise, you can find me on Twitter

I don't know how to read the clouds in Rome
#flickr #photo #Italy #italytravel  
But I suspect that if I go for a walk, I'll get drenched. So I think I will stay on the balcony and watch the sky. When I'm not out and about, you can find me on Twitter
