Postcards from Readers: Carnival in Italy

The photographer: O. Truman Holtzclaw of Fair Oaks

Behind the lens: I recently returned from Venice, Italy, where the Carnival celebration was going on. On this particular day the Carnival models went out to the colorful island town of Burano, about a 45-minute boat ride from Venice. There were about 25 of these wonderful and exquisite models walking about the town. All of the models were happy to pose for photographers, and they would give the photographers their own personalized cards in hopes the photographer would send them their image over the Internet.
