Even if you try to avoid taking typical photos, when you’re in Burano, what can you do?

If that’s what is considered typical, I’ll take it! Some destinations are just photogenic, from all angles. The best I’ve been to like that have been Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C.
I don’t know why we humans are so afraid to use colour on our houses. In a cold city like Edmonton, Alberta, where there’s so much snow for a lot of the year, the houses are in the main, so dull!
Thank you for your nice compliment.
You bring up a good point – wouldn’t chilly cities get a warm upgrade with a fresh coat of bright paint?

We used to enjoy saying “hello” to a lovely plump barred cat near a lace-shop on Burano. It seemed to hold court on a strip of red carpet! The cat sheltering beneath the laundry could well be its (pure bred buranese , of course – unless cats can hop on the vaporetto?) offspring. We haven’t seen it for a few years now, but still look at all the Buranese cats whenever we go there. We’ll probably take even more Venetian Cat photos when we go early December, both on Burano and of course the wonderful cats of Torcello.
It’s such a delight to see cats on Burano and Torcello, Andante. Those cats do have a look all their very own, don’t they? I went to Forte Marghera (one of the old defense network for Venice), and there was a colony of cats there, also.
well it looks like you just click away when you are in Burano – 🙂 ❤ and I love the color! wonderful place.
That’s absolutely correct, but it’s worth getting away from the well trodden paths as well. I usually get off the vaporetto at Mazzorbo, (another island) and have a prowl there first.
We looked at a house for sale here about 15 years ago. A pipe dream really. Living there cannot be easy especially in winter. Glad we saw sense. It was lilac.
Well, since it was lilac, I’m rather glad you decided against it!
I read that the colours are controlled and approved by the local authority and that owners need permission before they get their paint brushes out. Good pictures – I like Burano.
I’ve heard that also. Hmm, I’d better get to know someone who lives on Burano, and ask them.
Aren’t the colours a treat, Andrew?
I like the reflections in the canals.
I’ll look for some reflection photos for my next post, Andrew!
It was / is a paradise for photographers and any one with a cat in it is guaranteed success. Big tick from me 🙂
Chuckle. So now, it’ll be cats galore:in a gondola, on a vaporetto, up the clock tower, on a pissotta, and so on.
I hope your day goes well!
Shirley has a very good Burano cat photo. I must find it and share.
Look what turned up on my Facebook page today, your accordion player:
Lovely photos as always Y! I like that cat. Do you think he/she is a purebred Buranese?
I have often wondered which color house I would like to live in. I rather like that orange/salmon/terra cotta color, third photo down.
Yes, that is definitely a purebred Buranese, Susie.
Re: the house colours, that’s a tough question. Maybe I’d go with the
Casa Bepi option.
Oh, I can see you living in Casa Bepi!
I’ve exactly the same photos from 25 years go! Though some of the houses will have had a new lick of paint since then 😉
That place must be the most photographed in the whole world, lotc! You should post those photos on your blog.
I took a photo of matching laundry on a line as well as a curtain over a door. ^^
That island is a dream for photographers, Junko.
Very ‘colour my world’, isn’t it?
Very, Gerard! I look forward to your photos from there. 🙂
Love all the color!!!
It’s a bit like the houseboats in Victoria, Darlene.
AH, my beloved Burano!
There is no such thing as a “typical photo” there.
When I’m next back there, I would like to see if the house in the foreground of the first photo has been painted. It’s such a rebel. 🙂
Yes, I was under the impression that those places were to be painted once a year. Guess they missed that memo as it seems to have been a while. I saw several like that in 2012.
