It was difficult to hear all about carnival this year and not have a chance to participate--oh, if I could only be at two places at once! But I tried to keep up with the activities by reading about them--and then collecting email news from friends who were able to participate--either in Venice or Ivrea or New Orleans.
This picture was shot on Valentine's Day, 2012. by Sandra Cuel, my good friend from Austria who has often joined me in Venice either for carnival or during the summer. This early morning shot has all the right elements--a beautiful "mask" against the soft morning light. What you can't see is the "mask's" breath, but Sandra assured me that it was a very cold morning!
