If you haven’t visited Burano, Italy you should check it out on your next visit to Venice, Italy. Its a quick boat ride away from Venice and well worth it. The houses are all different colors and everyone takes pride in their house. The windows and doors are decorated to match the houses. I came across this house that had the laundry hanging outside and the bike parked out front. Classic Burano, Italy

Lighting for a photographer is key. My favorite time is early in the morning but right before sunset is a great time for light. Its called the Golden Hour. Everything seems to glow at this time of day. My day in Burano I was so distracted by the beauty that I got lost. Which thank goodness I eventually made my way back to the water but not before getting some great shots.
The island of Burano located about an hour boat ride from Venice is known for their colored houses and lace. The houses were painted different colors so when the sailors came home after a few drinks they could find their house. I was especially drawn to the beautiful blue doorways on this island. Here are a few!
I love to photograph early in the morning its very hard to capture the sounds and smells I experience. During the early morning you can smell the coffee brewing and hear the sounds of people opening up their shutters on their windows and taking that first breath of fresh air. This small moment I captured on the island of Burano. I was photographing the door and all of the sudden the old woman came out to clean her front walkway. She was there for a brief moment that I could capture her and then she was gone again.
Well I promised to tell you the ups and downs of living in Switzerland and well here is the first hiccup. I am staying at my friends house and I decided to do laundry. Well the machine broke… since there is no dryer my clothes are soaking wet drying in my room. Lets hope tomorrow turns out a little better!
