It takes a lot to move me to incandescent rage, but my encounters with the phenomenon of ‘selfie sticks’ when in Venice last year prompted me to this rant. And I have to say that time has proved to be no emollient.
As far as I can see, there is only one possible valid use for a selfie stick, and since science has already invented colonoscopes for that kind of thing, even that’s debatable.

The high contrast from the strong shadows works well in Black & White, I think, as does the highlighted texture of the walls.
