Has carnival lost its colour?

By nellacphoto  
February's Venice Carnival is looking less and less like happening now

Mixed feelings amongst the costumes who spend most of their year putting together their incredible creations. Some are still carrying on with their work and have made their bookings. Others seem resigned to the inevitable.

I would normally book my flights and hotel 6 months in advance, in August. But I had already decided to give it a miss in 2021

A real shame as this has been the highlight of my photographic year and I have been there the last three years in a row

Here's hoping for 2022

I don't think it's just the chance to take more images this year your miss, but the people behind the masks you have got to know Colin.

All great images have that relationship and your wonderful pictures captures that.

On the upside just think how good 2022 wil be...

Is that a gondola or a mono-log?

A very apt image given the situation, Colin.
I like the way you've composted it and mono does seem to suit.
Let's hope for some kind of miracle.

I think February is just a bit too early. Very sad but I don't think the vaccine will be rolled out to enough of the population by then. 2022 should be a safe bet as long as it doesn't mutate or another one appears.

Yes, know how you feel here Colin,
I just went down the route that I needed to have my Venice 'Fix'
to make it through all this ...
so booked last May for the Rialto Hotel,
and have canal views for a week in March,
fingers firmly crossed
Great image as well!
