Venice Carnival 2019 (Final part)

By nellacphoto  
Finishing off my 2019 visit with some of the most well known regulars.

It's often easy to spot them from a distance as they will have attracted a large group of photographers.

The lead is of the Rose sisters from Germany. There are usually three of them.
I had photographed Mona the year before.
On this occassion I suddenly found myself walking alongside Mona and Annette.
I quickly started a conversion and asked if we could do some shots.
Mona said they were on their way to a private shoot, but said yes they had a few minutes.
We stepped into the square and I started shooting.
Within seconds there were abut a dozen photographers standing behind me and joining in.

It is noticeable that the photographers generally respect whose shoot it is, but of course still take any opportunities they can.
And why not?

Characters in order of versions:
Mona & Annette Rose (Germany)
Emy Sabbatini & Gabriele Annovi (Italy)
Florine Houee (France)
Joyce & Joseph Pitassi (USA)
Veronica de Valois (?)
Joelle Venise (France)
Emy Sabbatini & Gabriele Annovi (Italy)

I'm with Zen. Getting arrested by Emy would definitely be a case of crime paying!
A fantastic set with which to finish a fantastic journey, Colin!

A great end to the series, and look forward to your next visit to Venice. I assume the end police couple, are the two American attenders?
