Everybody in South America wants a pope selfie.

As Pope Francis visits Ecuador, Bolivia, and Paraguay this week, he's met with crowds of cellphone waving faithful, all angling for a prized holy selfie with the holy see.

Francis, the first pope in the age of the selfie, has openly embraced the trend by pausing to pose for cellphone pics with churchgoers, clergy members and politicos alike. But some people are better at it than others.

The popemobile. Always a classic.
