Carnevale di Venezia (Weekend Reflections # 126)

Venice, Italy (Campo San Rocco at night)  -I counted fifteen masks but there may be more.

It's Carnival time and even the reflection of the Church of San Rocco wears a mask or masks.
However I was a couple of months early when I took this picture. :)

Please only link posts that have picture/s of reflections.

Magnifiques tous ces visages d'or, dont les regards noirs semblent se lever vers le reflet!
Certains sourient, et on dirait que l'esprit de Carnaval se moque de L'eglise..Bravo! Non, Bravissimo! :o)

I'm in love with your reflections. I think the one from last week was my fave of all time, but these golden masks are so fascinating. What a great subject to have in a reflection shot. You mix the present with the reflections so masterfully. Well seen and captured.

I had your badge on my blog, but now clicking on it just takes me back to my blog site instead of yours. I right clicked and copied as I did before, but nothing shows up. How else can I grab your badge to put on my blog?
