Exposed Feet in Rainy Rome

In: Photography, Travel

Found this image while clearing up my photo collection. Ro and I were walking around Rome and the Vatican, in the cold rain, when we realized we were the only ones not wearing closed shoes. Do doubt it got a bit chilly sometimes (especially while waiting in those long queues) …but at the end of [...]

I came across this great website for comparing camera features. Snapsort allows you to pick two camera models and compare them feature wise. It also shows you the clear winner between them.

Guard Dog

Or is it? Took this pic in Panjim. This mutt was just staring at me. Do I look like some terrorist when I’m unshaven? Love the brightly painted house.
