It must be a strong breeze...
Picturit: A man-made breeze.....
Astrid.
Oh I love performances like this - especially if there is dance involved... and props... props are good! I'm always impressed because I'd probably spear myself in the head! smile

Great images, Astrid, and I enjoyed the video.

It's so fun to "happen" upon something like this - Frank and I have, often!
Picturit: We heard music and flags in the air, so we kind of 'elbowed' through the crowd. I ended up with some shots. Don't you love these moments????
Thank you, Elizabeth.

What was this all about, Astrid?
Picturit: It was the flower festival and celebrating the Spring. There was a large flower market on the square in front of the Arena.

a wonderful capture of this feast or demonstration - I have the same question like Lisl.
Picturit: It was the flower festival of Verona, lots of flowers for sale and this demonstration.
Thank you Philine, welcome back and we hope you had a great time in Venice.

This must have been lovely to have seen for yourselves. Thanks for the link to the video; it's a fine spectacle.

A very fortunate time to visit!

i really like the patterns formed by the cobblestones in the first shot, Astrid.

Astrid.
