well i can’t resist another quick post of some of the images i took at the venetien carnival in annecy. i had an amazing time both on the evening and the following day at the carnival and chatted to quite a few of the "costumiers" parading, (walking doesn’t seem a grand enough term), around in their finery. they told me that they can spend a whole year creating these beautiful, beautiful costumes – the attention to detail is stunning. whilst creating a gallery for the stars of the show i realised just how many of my favorite shots i had left out….
if you are near annecy 2 weekends after mardi gras (so around 20th March 2011) it really is worth the trip and the ‘costumiers’ parade round the old town of annecy for three days
i can’t wait for next year x
