With Venice canals and buildings in the backdrop, there is a Carnevale performer sitting on the bridge. My first reaction was amusement for there are two photographers here; one unseen and one seen - the photographer taking the photo of the Mask or the Mask taking one of the photographer. Upon closer examination I really appreciate the details that went into this costume for it does indeed represent travel. Travel is represented in the skirt of the dress where I can see post card words and stamps upon the fabric. Also in the hat are picture frames with photos of famous landmarks.

You have a keen eye. The picture is of very high resolution thanks to the old folding camera: indeed this is a double play, a photographer (with a his historic camera) takes a picture of a "travel" mask with another historic camera. Not only the dress, but even the brooch has a detailed image that can be seen! Personally I like rendition of the background and this is a spot in Venice where I come back again and again with the masks.
