Bob in St Peter's Square in Rome where the Pope is delivering a blessing to a large crowd. Quince Marlene took this picture in the crowd. He explains here how, despite a bit of photoshopping, the picture genuinely shows the Pontiff blessing Bob: 

"the book was a bit 'lower and the Pope was too far away ... I held up the book with photshop ... the book was there and it was really blessed ... it's hard to do some strange movement at this time in Vatican, because there have been several protests .. and the police arrives even if nothing happens ..."
