festa

... last night, these little kids were playing with the cut-up strips of paper which are thrown from balconies and porches into the street during the village feast

looks like a painting on black background!
Wow! That is fabulous. Have a Fav from me.

Very effective, how did you manage that?
June 9th, 2013  
@jo13 camera did it all by itself :o) well it takes hopeless photos at night and no chance with zoom - but this was pretty and then some processing natch x
June 9th, 2013  
@jo13 lots of little lights in the street (old style lightbulbs) make gorgeous tones too
