Iconic views of Venice -
Top: San Giorgio Maggiore, Left: Doges Palace, Right Grand Canal
|Puss in Boots|
This chap is there most years and is very
chivalrous with the ladies!
Marie Antoinette - she just gets moodier
by the year - really!
I think she should give it up if she's not happy.
It never ceases to amaze me how people create their costumes and it is always nice to see new and unusual ones. You never know what you will see. I was quite amused by this chap who decided to dress in some sort of homage to (Coco) Chanel! The detail of his outfit was incredible.

Of course you get some beautiful fantastical costumes such as these delightful ones -
|Really pretty in beige and duck egg blue.|
|Turquoise harlequin patterns.|
|Fabulous extravagance in gold and purple!|
Simplicity in black and very easy
to transport I imagine.
|Basilica San Marco|
|The Salute and a typical Venetian Canal and Gondola|
|Around the Rialto - Clockwise from left:- a beautiful Gondola, |
the flooded market area, Grand Canal and The Rialto Bridge
One day on one of the vaporetto pontoons I saw a beautiful Little Egret up close. He seemed to favour this spot as I saw him there again another time!
Next time I will have a few more photos of the carnival people and the sights.
