While in Venice, we visited the Island of Burano, which is located 4.3 miles from Venice in the Venetian Lagoon. Burano is a small island with a population of 2,800 and is known for its brightly painted houses and shops and its artists. The colors of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development; if someone wishes to paint their home, they must send a request to the government, who responds with the permitted colors for that lot.
Burano is also known for its lace. However, it was not the lace that attracted me to the island. It was the colorful buildings. A typical canal and pedestrian street was captured in the below photo. (Nikon D700, 28mm, f14, 1/250, ISO 200)
Many of the buildings on Burano, as well as in Venice and throughout Italy, had very photographic windows–photographic for many reasons, such as colors, flowers, shape or age. The windows in Burano were simpler, but still photographic! Below are two examples. (First photo: Nikon D700, 98mm, f11, 1/320, ISO 200; second photo: D700, 122mm, f9, 1/500, ISO 200)
Eventually, I will add these and more photos from Burano to my Website. Burano was candy to my eyes.
