We begin August with the photography of Charles Swanson. 


“Hungarian Parliament Across The Danube” was taken at dusk from Castle Hill. I love Budapest. Hungarians say there are two kinds of people in the world: those who live in Buda and the rest of the world who wish they did. 


“Spanish Shadows” was taken in the Italian village, Livorno. I caught the sun at just the right declination from the horizon on a sunny day. I love everything about this shot: the shadows, the coloration, and the stonework on the building.
