Postcard from the Vatican City

This is one of many of statues in front of the St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, across the Tiber River from Rome. I took over 250 photos that day but most of them came out less than perfect.

I normally don't like the photos I take when I'm on vacation. I think I get too distracted by the interesting sites and sounds around me to focus on photography. Either that or the real image is always more beautiful than what turns out on the camera.

Does this happen to you?
