About two week ago, I was very excited designing my own customized business cards. The project came out fine and I penned a post about it here at Lingua Franca.
After I was done designing the cards, I went to Multimax (five minutes drive from my house) to buy the inkjet cardboard to print the business cards. They had none that I liked, so I exited the place empty handed. But I was in for a surprise. On the way out towards my automobile, I saw the most beautiful mannequin beside a window of Floristería Emmanuel (Emmanuel Florist Shop).
Had I been a male mannequin, it would have been love at first sight, like Romeo and Juliet. The mannequin was gracefully sitting down beside the window, dressed as a typical reveler of a Venice Carnival. Her face was beautifully decorated with circular colored stars and other sophisticated facial makeup. The costume was spectacular with a bright red feather protruding from her right ear. I have never seen a mannequin that lovely before.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera with me. But her picture had already developed in my mind like a Kodak film. Yesterday morning I returned to the flower store and took several pictures of the lovely lady from Venice. Since the shots were taken through a glass window, several of the photographs showed an annoying reflection. Fortunately, some came out just fine.
Below are the pictures of the Venice Carnival Reveler for your enjoyment. I decided to include the first picture with the reflections problems, because I wanted you to see the entire mannequin wearing her brightly-colored costume. Then I dissected the figure with close up pictures to highlight the exquisite details of her costume. This is what I saw. Here we go.
In the final analysis, I didn’t walk out empty handed from the computer shop. I came out with one of the best pictures I have taken thus far during my brief photographic adventure. Good Day.
