The Colours of Venice & Burano

DSC_0439

Burano is the most colourful city in the world. I’m sure of it! This place will instantly bring a smile to your face and uplift your soul. Venice is undoubtedly unique, with its lack of ‘roads’ and cars – all travel is by foot or boat through the renowned water canals. These islands will steal your heart (and your camera battery!). Take a look at some of my favourite shots from one of my favourite places!

“The daily flood” – desperate times call for desperate measures- this man lent me his garbage bag to get through a tough spot!

Burano

Excerpt from my last blog post on Burano:

“A bright blue house had white linens hung out on a line outside.  A Purple house had lavender on the windowsill. A pink house with green shutters held a blue pair of rubber boots and a pot of basil leaves on its windowsill and a purple umbrella hanging next to the sill. A green house had hung out a line of pastel colour lacy linens drying. Elderly ladies sat outside the front of their houses on little chairs chatting with one another in their swift Italian, hands all a flutter as they gesticulated. A little yellow house sat squished between a purple and blue one. Oh my sweet colourful Burano, you stole my heart and filled my eyes with rainbows!”
