We know we’ve been raving about Venice since last month, but how can we not get enamored with it, when our fellow lomographers have nothing but postcard-worthy lomographs and wanderlust-inducing stories to tell about it?

Venice is one of the most famous Italian cities, renowned for the beauty of its architecture and natural settings, as well as its cultural and historical offerings. These attractions have undoubtedly made it one of the most visited and sought after destinations by intrepid travelers around the world. Who doesn’t dream of cruising around its canals and waterways, taking in its exquisite Rococo interiors and diverse architectural style, snapping away at the interesting scenes unfolding in its historic streets, wining and dining in its fine cafes and restaurants, and bringing home a lovely memento or two from its shops and boutiques?

Aside from the canals and gondolas that earned it a place in the roster of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice has also been popular for its Carnival, an annual celebration known for its elaborately masked and costumed revelers. For those of us who missed the spectacle that is the Carnival of Venice this year, thankfully, our fellow lomographer, lanzo78 from Ferrara, Italy, has taken some beautiful photos from the previous celebrations:
