This is a mask of the hundreds present during the 2011 Venice Carnival.
I've been in Venice for 2 days. Venice is a fantastic city, and the carnival is amazing!
There are so many gorgeous masks!
Venice carnival tips: Go to Venice and stay at least 2 days. The second day wake up early, set the alarm for six and half, then be in S.Marco square at 7 o clock. You'll find good light, a hundred of mask posing for hundreds of photographers, and no hordes of tourists :-)
