A beautiful and bright image,So when are we going to see the image of you wearing the mask Lilian.
Well done you for wearing one ,I would have done the same as you,I once wore a big costume of a Big Cat that comes around school's to help learn Children on road safety,they had nobody to wear it so I did twice,even some of the staff did not realise it was me.Anything for fun is good Lilian.SmileSmileSmileSmile

Great colours and a well composed image. I do think, like Barbs, these masks are somwhat sinister but that of course makes perfect sense given the history of Venice!
