Photographer's Note

It was L Day in Burano when I was there. L as in Laundry. Everywhere, clothes were hung to dry under the hard sun!! It was really (really!!!!) warm that day and I don't think it would take more than 10 minutes for any clothes to dry under those conditions, but I suspect that they just hang the clothes like that to give the little town even more lovely!!!:D

Burano is a cool city, with cool people, cool little colored house, a cool relaxed vibe. Did you know that the colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development? If someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot. This practice has resulted in the myriad of warm, pastelly colours that characterises the island today.

Burano is situated 7 kilometers from Venice, a short 40 minute trip by Venetian boats, "vaporetti." The island is linked to Mazzorbo by a bridge. The current population of Burano is about 4,000.
