A Picture and its Story: A selfie with the pope
Reuters photographer Max Rossi takes a selfie photograph with Pope Francis while flying over the Atlantic Ocean February 12, 2016. Reuters Photographer Max Rossi: "It's not every day you get a selfie with the pope. I took this photo high above the Atlantic en route to Mexico. I asked Pope Francis to have a selfie with me for my family. My argument was simple: it's common to see people asking for a selfie with him. To my delight, he said yes. People around me congratulated me. Comments from my colleagues about this selfie were all pleasant although some regretted not having asked the same question. The contact between Francis and the press is very gracious. I have also travelled with Pope Benedict and John Paul II: three popes with very different attitudes and personalities but each one an incredible person. This trip has been particularly demanding. We usually wake up around 4 a.m. and get back to our hotel about 9 p.m. An assignment like this is really hard, not least as we carry a lot of gear all day. Even so it's very exciting and the effort is worth it. The pictures you take are important. A sense of occasion is everywhere too, that gives you energy. People in Mexico are very excited, you can feel their devotion. Everyone tries to get a selfie or at least a photo to commemorate his visit. Mexican clergy have got in on the act, taking pictures as the pope prayed in front of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City." Picture taken February 12, 2016.
