Burano

Yellow Boat in Burano, Italy

I was taking my chances of ending up in the “drink” in Burano with this photo. You can see by the photo, that I leaned way to far over the water, to get the boat as much in the photo as I could. Any farther and I was in the canal. It’s kind of crazy when I look back, expensive camera and all, would never survive the splash. No one ever said photographers weren’t a little crazy. But, I got the shot!

Yellow Boat in Burano, Italy

Just a short boat ride from Venice is a small colorful island community of Burano. Famous for lace, it offers the traveler a rainbow of colors to enjoy, as each home is painted in individually, distinctive colors. Each time we visit Venice, we make plans to stop over in Burano for some serious photography. Venice is great, but quaint Burano has a personality all it’s own. Walk the canal streets, relax at an outside restaurant, take in the locals, admire the rows of homes and gift shops across the island.. and don’t forget your camera.

One of my favorite places in Italy is near Venice. Burano a small island with a character uniquely it’s own, is worth a visit when you’re in Venice. A short boat ride brings you to this quaint colorful town with canals, restaurants, lace and gift shops. Every home and business is painted a different color of the rainbow. For a photographer, the camera never stops clicking. I’ve been here many times and always looking forward to the next possible visit.

Colorful Burano, Italy

Daily Photo:

As we get back to normal after our Alaska excursion, I find myself thinking about the next trip coming up. As we approach fall, Europe seems to be in the back of my mind.  We stayed away from Europe this summer with the Olympics going on.

Speaking of Europe, I thought I would share some Italian with you.

A short water taxi ride from Venice is an Island called Burano. For day trippers who want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Venice, Burano serves up a treat of pastel-hued homes all painted a different color, canals and bridges to stroll on and over, restaurants and gift shops, all the normal touristy things. As for photographers, you won’t be disappointed. Your camera won’t stop clicking.

Island Pastels from Burano, Italy

Daily Photo:

A small island not far from Venice is a town of many colors. Each home and business is painted a different color. The rainbow effect splashed down on this favorite spot of  mine. Anytime we go to Venice we try to take a water bus over to this quaint little place that beckons tourist to spend a little time, spend a little money and photo buffs like me a chance to go crazy clicking a way. Beautiful restaurants on the canals and a popular item here to buy and watch artisans hard at work on, is “lace”.

Canals of Burano, Italy

Daily Photo:

A short distance by water taxi or water bus from Venice is a cute small island called Burano. Every home is painted a different color. Like Venice canals weave through the town from every direction with many bridge crossings. This island is definitely a tourist destination with shops and restaurants up and down the cobblestone walkways and corridors. As a photographer your camera never stops clicking as the “photo ops” simply unfold in front of you.
