For today’s color, let’s go to the wonderful little island of Burano, in Venice, where I travelled in March. Not to be confused with Murano, the glass-making island, Burano is a colorful island known for lace-making that is about 40 minutes out on the vaporetto. I read about it in our guidebook and knew it was the one thing I must see in Venice.
I peered around the back of one of the main canals and found this green still life waiting for me.
And on the main canal, a fisherman (maybe?) and a rusty pipe, with faded green shutters to draw your eye in. I am a shy photographer, and I think he was just about to notice I was taking his photo, so I darted off right afterward.
A green curtain hanging in a doorway, with it’s little lace trimmings.
And a quaint patio full of citrus trees. I love the combination of orange and green. That reminds me that I have an orange and green Donald Sultan Print from my Lincoln Center days that I’d really like to frame and display.
And the final burst of green: the shiny, clean vaporetto seats on the way back. For more colorful photos of Burano, visit my flickr. There are enough in there for every color this week, but that’d be too easy.
