More from the Venice trip, this one should last through Silly Sunday and beyond, here are nine candid images of Carnevale participants. I actually didn't take many glam shots of the people in costume, which probably says a lot about me and proves the fact that we are all different.

V1 is of one of the many, many guys who use Carnevale as the perfect opportunity to dress as women. Here he is putting on his size 46, nine inch, platform soled stilettos, which made him at least 6'8") before trolling off with his group, clicking his castanets (make of that what you will) swirling his frillies, singing and dancing through the crowded streets.

The rest are equally candid shots (I shall caption them all) most not brilliant photographically as they are 'capture the moment' shots, but they do attempt to portray the more relaxed and fun atmosphere of Carnevale. Mods are welcome, particularly if you can dream up fun captions.

Anyway, thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy at least some of them.

I bet those shoes are agony! This is very much my sort of take, I like people when they let the mask drop. Literally, in the case of Venice Carnevale - this would almost encourage me to go!

Super candids, Lynne, and good to see some 'out of the ordinary' carnevale images. I love the look you have captured on his face in V.5 Grin Carol

Well Lynne, I didn't get around to buying any shoes, but did get a beautiful soft leather bag. Not the one I was eyeing up mind you. Could have done with a load of that guy's shoes to see over the crowds Grin. As for Captain Jack Sparrow - a magnet for the older woman too hehehehe. Great set of candids, am now off to look for the telephoning monk. Haven't got around to getting all my shots on the hard drive yet. Also have a courtesan with a compact camera. Might save these for a silly Sunday. Moira

V5 for me. You've caught the intensity of the young man, which minutes later exploded into loud singing and dancing and castanet clacking that lasted hours judging by the glimpses we got of him and his companions throughout the day.

Thoroughly excellent set, Lynne, and I love how you've painstakingly processed each one so beautifully.

I can see the Spanish 'dame' ditching her heel and massaging her left foot on the other one in v5 Smile

My favourite has to be v8, hands down.
