Morning all. A couple of silly Sunday shots today. Spotted this chap with his compact trying to take a shot of the Campanile. V2, although it can't be seen, this monk is speaking on his mobile. Missed the shot of his face when he spotted me taking shots of him. He just laughed, pointed at his phone and then his costume. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

I look forward to see what you, Lynne and Trev have brought home by way of costume shots from the Carnival, Moira, and am never disappointed. These are two fine candids (I suppose that's the right term): the chap in V 1 was not making things easier for himself with that mask, and the monk in V 2 with his mobile to his ear was an opportunity not to be missed.

Yes,you never get an escape from all this new technology Moira.
The lady's dress in V2 takes me back to my camping days,with it being bigger than some tents I stayed in.
I bet the tents today have all the mod cons now.
It would not be the same for me though.
Half the fun was finding a place to hang up my lamp !!
