Colored Houses of Burano

Colored Houses of Burano

Is it possible to walk around Burano for the first time and not smile at the brightly colored houses? The streets look like bags of jelly beans. Murano also has brightly colored houses, but it doesn’t come close to Burano. We spent a few hours in Burano to check out the lace museum and walk around, but it wasn’t easy getting from point A to point B when I had to stop and photograph houses every few minutes. All I can say is that it’s a good thing I didn’t discovery photography in the days of film camera; I would have bankrupted my family.

      I googled images of Cinque Terra to see what they looked like. Yes, very similar, except that the Cinque Terra buildings appear to be much larger, more like apartment blocks. Murano also has colored houses, but they’re not nearly as vivid.

  2. Looks great. That first one would be really nice in selective color. Just a suggestion. 🙂

      Interesting idea! Then the houses wouldn’t have to compete with the boats and the green (no doubt extremely polluted) water of the canal. Thanks!
