Carnevale 2013- day 4

Sharing a few of my favorite photos from Carnevale today in St. Mark's square.







 Loved this scale model of the Clock tower. 






 I was tempted to make an offer on this guy's jacket for Mike.



And, last but not least- one my ride home this evening on the vaporetto I caught these twins with white fur capes and gorgeous blonde curls.

It is amazing what artists can do to a plain mask.

Dianne said...

Yes,, they are magnificent pictures. I assume that the costumes are rentals. Any idea how much it costs to rent them?

Hi Karen,

Lovely photos and beautiful blue skies, so different to Christmas!

I'll be in Venice for a few days from 14-18 February, to commemorate what would have been the 37th anniversary since I met Laing. He loved Venice so much, probably my fault. Get ready for the weather to change and turn cold and wet and cloudy, I have a habit of bringing out the worst weather! It would be wonderful if I could meet you at long last, your blog has been inspirational.
