The Snaily King and Queen

By Snaphappyannie  
Something completely different! One of my absolutely favourite destinations is Venice. Not for the wonderful art and architecture - which are worth visiting any day. No - being a foto-fanatic - it is always the Venice Festival. Didn't happen last February - and won't happen this coming February. A glorious week of costumes, models and fun and games - oh and crowds too! You need to get up at 6.00am to catch the models - who are all dressed and performing so I guess they don't sleep! This little group walked past our apartment. They were from an Italian Theatre Group - and happily posed for us. How lucky? This pair were husband and wife. He made all the props - including his staff and hat. She made the costumes and did the makeup for the whole group! I don't know what the Snaily connotation was all about - but they were covered in golden snails! Buttons, staff decorations, hat, earrings - the lot! Because we were in a backstreet - the crowds didn't find us so we had them all to ourselves for about an hour and a half!! More will follow - if you can bear it?!!

I agree with Arne. I like the background too, as well as your narrative Ann.
