Photos: Carnevale in Venice

Last week I found myself once again in beautiful Venice having a wonderful time teaching fellow photographers all about the way I do photography.

The weather was good and springy, if not cold, and the light was fantastic.

February is Carnevale time and my workshop coincided with the final weekend. And boy was it busy…but busy in a good way. The city was alive with beauty and the strange. Costumed phantoms and Ladies of the court from begone days strolled the narrow streets, posed by gondolas and let everyone photograph them. And everyone did.

I have never seen so many photographers in my life. Usually, I don’t find the crunch of hundreds of other togs fun, but fun it was! Watching the pros and beginners all having such a good time (some togs were a bit too serious) wandering the city and finding the exotic everywhere to photograph.

Venice is a very special place at any time but during the Carnevale it is outstanding.
