The above photo of a Rome window is the featured photo for January 2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:

I took this photo while walking to the Vatican in Rome, on a very sunny afternoon. When i walk through the streets — in fact, no matter what I’m doing or where I am — I am constantly scanning for photos. I’m looking for beautiful color, dramatic light, interesting subject. This is not a famous building — just a typical Roman beauty. I was drawn to it because of the wonderful peach color of the stucco, the classic pediment window and the sharp shadows that add drama to the scene.
