Venice, Italy – Part 4
I think it is about time for another trip to my favourite city in all the world, Venice! If I ever won the lottery, I would buy an apartment there so that I could fly back and forth whenever I wanted! I would love to visit Venice during ‘Carnivale’ in February, and I have seen some amazing photographs of Venetians dressed in the most elaborate masks and costumes, wandering about Venice posing for cameras during this period. I have seen the masks and costumes that are worn during ‘Carnivale’ displayed in shops dotted around the city, in back alleys, out of the tourist areas. The shop owners produce them on site and are happy for visitors to go in and have a look, watch them working, and buy their expensive wares, if you have the money to do so! Unfortunately, we have never been able to visit at this time of year, because having been the headteacher (principal) of a school, and Penny (my other half) being a teacher, we have never been able to have time off during term time! Maybe next year when we have both finished work? Anyway, here is a further selection of Venice photographs taken on a number of summer visits to the city! Hope you like them!
I have found that wide angle shots don’t always look as sharp as they should when displayed in a post. If you wish to see the sharper uploaded version just click on the photograph!
As visitors who follow my blog will know, I often include Penny in the text part of my posts, so I thought you might like to see what she looks like!
Well, I have to say that putting this post together has got me wishing for a foreign holiday now! Maybe I should get the brochures out??? Hope you like the photographs! Thanks for visiting and hopefully I will meet you here again soon!
