All the World's a Stage by BenHeine All the World's a Stage by BenHeine

NEW: Prints of the above photo now available!

"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players" (Shakespeare).

A picture I took in Venice. I made a little animated gif with each colored mask. If you wish, you can also view some random details here and the colored masks individually here.

(I just came back from a great 3 days trip in Northern and Central Italy. I visited Venice, Rimini, Florence, Bologna, Forli, Faenza and Cesena. Many thanks to my guides and friends HEESUN and PAOLO. I'll share many artistic photos in the coming weeks.)

Well I certainly wasn't expecting it to move like that :) It's very eye catching, it's nice to see the colours, and I did have to keep watching until I'd seen them all :)
