Superb image, Ginnie...one of your best!
Ginnie Hart: When you say things like that, Ray, I'm always amazed. Thank you!
Stunning. We have a few masks like this we purchased at a renaissance festival and I wore it once to a costume party. The dark reds and glowing golds are gorgeous. Hope to catch up on my European cruise (I mean your vacation smile soon - lots of summertime outdoors with the kids - swimming/horses (walking five miles a day) has me falling into bed at night. This ol' gal can't keep up smile Hope you are doing well.

Oh my goodness. 6 attempts to get the "code" right below. Off to try again. smile
Ginnie Hart: You amaze me, Margaret! Your children are your priority right now during these summer months, so worry not about staying caught up with the rest of us! First things first! But thank you anyway for stopping by. (And drat those codes!)
Love the party masks. Feels elegant.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Almost anything from Vienna feels elegant. smile

Beautiful image, well done
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Robbyne.
I'll take the second mask... for a day... today in fact.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Jacquelyn. HA! grin
Some days I sure wish I could!
This is really a gorgeous shot - the tones are remarkable!
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Elizabeth. I felt incognito here the last couple days. smile Many thanks.

Perfect composition, they look great

All ready for a masked ball. I think I hear a Strauss waltz......

I will need a mask when I go down a to sort Bill out.Trimbo is next on the list .Nice shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Good one, Mick. Thanks.

Going incognito with these masks led to some rather unsavoury practices I believe Ginnie. Or am I simply jealous?
Ginnie Hart: HA! You don't have to tell all your secrets, Chad!
Mozart operas come to mind!
Ginnie Hart: Definitely Mozart area, Wim. We saw him everywhere! smile

So beautiful shapes, details
Nice golden color
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Helys.
I envision a Viennese ballroom filled with beautiful ladies in stunning gowns daintily dancing to harpsichord music when I look at this, Ginnie. I agree with Ray, one of your best.
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. It doesn't get much better than that, Beverly. THANK YOU!
I like this very much, great tones and details.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Brian.

So mystical - a reminder that I must add the Venice Carnival to my photographic "bucket list"
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh, I would love to see your take on the Venice Carnival, George. And to think this was only from a souvenir shop! smile
