More Carnevale photos

Bright sun, blue skies- perfect ingredients for my mission of the day - get some more Carnevale costume photos. I was not disappointed!!  I came home with over 100 fantastic shots, and just couldn't decide how to pare that down to just a few for a blog post today.

Join me as I stroll through St. Mark's....

Wow Karen, what great photos. Sure envy you being there to see the real Carnevale. We have an event with our Italian Cultural Society on Tuesday evening -- masks required but I bet it won't be as colorful as the real thing. Have fun!

Karen, once again,you have captured some great shots!!! I love the one of the lady sitting alone on the bench with her head down. Oh, but really, I love them all, are there more??? You should think about selling your prints or making them into a calendar!

Beautiful photos, thanks. I saw some photos from the Carnevale years ago and promised myself to see it with my own eyes sometime. . For my 50th birthday I came to Venice for the Carnevale with my husband and thorougly enjoyed it. Have made several visits to Venice, even attending a language course and hope there will be many more. Best regards from a very snowy Finland!

Those photos are great! They really give “faces” to the word Carnevale. But I’d like to ask you one question- I have read that most of the people at the Venice carnival are not from Venice – is that true? are they mostly from other parts of Italy or other countries?

karen said...

That is true. A lot come from France. The people in the fancy costumes are generally not Venetians.

Do you mind if I print some of your photos to show my class (4 and 5 year olds) tomorrow? We have a grandmother coming in to read us a story about Carnevale in the morning and I thought that maybe I could add some photos to it. I won't use them for anything else.

Jodi- sure! I'm honored!

We missed coming due to flight cancellation, as you know Karen, so these photos are the next best thing. Thank you so much. I looked on the Piazza webcam and it was busy at 4pm for the flag flight but the evening looked very quiet. Perhaps it looked busier on the ground

Oh I do love those blue and yellow boots, rather green (!) with envy!
