Carnevale in Venice

Gondolier XI
Gondolier XI


It's time for carnevale in Venice.  This year's festivities have already begun last month and will end on March 8 with a huge party to end all parties.  People walk on the streets, wearing costumes and traditional Venetian masks.  There are extravagant balls, concerts, parades on canals.  This is a big winter celebration, 40 days before Easter, when Venice transforms itself into a mysterious world of elegance and magic.

Dear Keiko san, this are stunning pieces, I spent one year in Venice serving in the Army, so I know the city very well, you captured the exact mood and feeling you can have there!

My compliments.
Mata ne!
