No Albert, they come from all over the world
to join in the fun of the carnival, and sometimes they will give you a card
with their email address and ask for a photo or two in exchange
so much atmosphere and fun...until another photographer walks in front of youSad
and that happens so much, so a little 'dig' in his back sometimes reminds him of manners
but you get used to it

They spend hours on the finest and smallest of detail to do this so professionally. Well done Lillian in another super photo showing this great event off at its best.

I have been looking forward to the results of your Venice trip and as before I am to disappointed: you always manage to come back with such excellent shots, as this one of the two ladies joined at the hip shows.
Lovely work, Lillian.

I know all about other inconsiderate photographers getting in the way after one has lined up a shot: more often recently it has been dogs enquiring what I am up to when taking flowers or fungi in the park........R.

Excellent Lillian.

When I was doing weddings I often had Photographers leaning over my should taking the same shot as me. One step back onto their toes seemed to do the trick.

Joined at the hip indeed Lillian !!
And at the Fringe it is a big problem with the togs walking in front of me as I take the shot.
I usually take it and dig them in the back,and ask them for their address so I can send them a pic of the back of their heads !!

Against the grey stone this initially looks like a colour popped image.

Two fun characters, Lillian, and they seem to be enjoying themselves.
I was interested in what you said above because I was just discussing this with my partner, wondering where the characters came from.
