The photo above is the featured photo for July 2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:

Rome, again. As a general rule of thumb, I photograph all the saints and angels and Madonnas I see, on the street, by the roadside or in a church. This faded saint — I don’t think it’s a Madonna — still reigns in one of Rome’s historic districts. I composed this on an angle so that I could bring in some of the soft blue of the old shutters, which contrast sweetly with the worn orange of the stucco. And who doesn’t love a bit of ribbon detail!
