i love the ‘Carnaval Vénitien‘ in Annecy – the costumes are so spectacular, so intricate and so colourful that photographing them is just brilliant !    this is the second year i have been along (see here & here ) – the carnaval starts on the friday evening with the ‘costumiers’ parading round the old medieval town of annecy in all their magnificence, then on the saturday and sunday hundreds of them take over the old town and the area down by the beautiful lake.  You can’t help but be amazed and seriously impressed by the amount of work that has gone into the creations which often take the whole year to prepare.  It was extra special this year as i knew some of the participants – though if i’m honest they recognised me rather than the other way round (possibly helped by the fact that i was accompanied by two little girls armed with cameras on their own mission to create "Volume Two" of their "Carnaval Masterpiece").

 

oh and the other reason it was special ……. it was the very first outing of my new camera !  hope you enjoy these shots ….
