Burano Canal | Venezia, Italia
The brightly colored boats and homes bathed in the setting sun was about as photogenic a scene as one could hope for.
Burano is a small island in the lagoon just outside Venezia (Venice), and is only a 30 minute boat ride from tourist central. It's a sleepy fishing village and poses a refreshing contrast to crowded and fast paced Venezia. At sunset the town square is filled with strolling old folks, teenagers and kids kicking soccer balls.
Shuttered windows with flower pots are all the rage in Italy and Burano is no exception:

I hung around for a few hours and ate dinner in a quaint sidewalk cafe. I can't say the food was good--actually was terrible--but the wine flowed freely and I left a happy albeit rather sedated man. Here's Burano's main plaza at twlight.
