The Madonna photo above is the featured photo for June2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:

Umbria and Tuscany are particularly rich in Madonnas -- not only in churches, but on building walls and even stand-alone shrines. This Madonna - protected by chicken wire -- was along a local road near Cortona. No matter what condition a Madonna might be in, she continues to be honored and remembered with candles and fresh flowers.
