The photo above is the featured photo for August 2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:
Can you smell the lavender? This view is from the Umbrian villa we stayed at for last July’s painting/photography workshop. Our participants, when asked what they wanted from the workshop (besides learning how to paint and photograph better), all said they wanted to be able to slow down and savor life. So we did. Soon after this photo was taken, we sat at the table, sipped the house wine, dined on pasta and wild boar, figs and apricots from the villa, and talked late into the night.
