Karen Kingsley DiNatale of Van Nuys visited Venice, Italy, in February during busy Carnavale season, when there were “a great cast of characters walking around with masks,” she said.

This one caught the mood of Italy’s capital of romance. She used a 35mm Nikon One Touch Zoom. (Karen Kingsley DiNatale)
