The Photo Sociology “I Can Do Better Than a Turner” Photography Award

S1290005 (2) - Copy

This is my photo of Corvinilor Castle in Hunedoara, Transylvania, Romania. Not sure it’s Turner quality, but some people would think that I deserve an award for getting The Fab Four to sit so nicely. And they are awfully cute…

If nothing else, I hope it brings joy and warmth into your day!
