    Lovely haiku. And that photo of yours just takes my breath away. What are those masks? They’re quite intriguing. 🙂

      Hi Rigel, thanks for your comment. These are masks people wear during Carnival in Venice, or buy as souvenir during the rest of the year, of course 🙂

    It sounds like an old proverb… Very nice indeed.

      Yes, it may sound like this… but it’s not. Thanks for your comment 🙂

      Hum… yes! when you wear a mask you hide yourself behind it and show a new-different face-feeling. So, who is the real “you”? Carnival had a very special meaning.
      thanks for commenting 🙂

    …and those beautiful Venetian masks hide those shadows…I like this graphic composition. Liked.

      Hi Janina, I took the same shot without the passing woman, but it wasn’t that good. This one is more intriguing with all those blind eyes looking around. Thanks for your comment 🙂
