Photo from the Road: Costumed Reveler on Venice Dock


Love costume shots? Enjoy Italy? If so, this photo is likely one youíll enjoy.

This picture of a costumed reveler was taken at the carnival in Venice back in 2000. I particularly love this shot because I was able to shoot it along the waterís edge by St. Markís square, which is a great spot to get people pics without a congested background.

As you might be able to tell, it was rather cold and windy on this particular day but this party participant didnít seem to mind as she posed for photographers along the dock.

  1. I love how the veil blowing in the wind turns this picture into almost a specter like image

    How great that you were able to get a nice shot without a lot of obstructing traffic. That’s one of my biggest frustrations with taking photos…finding a decent shot without a lot of extraneous stuff.

    Hi Dominique and Chris,

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. This is one of my favorite photos from my time in Italy. My only regret is that it was such a cloudy day the color doesn’t look as brilliant as I’d like. But since it does look a bit specterish as Chris mentioned, it sort of works. Looking forward to checking out both your blogs as well.

    Whenever I teach The Cask of Amontillado by Poe to my high school students, this is exactly what I picture when it talks about the carnival and all the costumes! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Jen,

    Glad it fits in with your educational efforts. I have a few more carnival photos I’ll try to include over the coming months. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Have a great day.
