As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve decided to alternate between freshly processed images from my recent European trip and selections from my back catalogue, just to spice things up a bit and create more variation.
So today you get two shots of contrasting walls from the insanely colourful Italian island of Burano in the Venetian lagoon, taken last March.
This place is famous for its gaudy and over-the-top house decor – imagine a village in which every dwelling is painted in a dazzling shade with complete disregard to the colours of those surrounding it, and that’s Burano.
These bright colours may look fake, but I can assure you that these pictures have no post-processing whatsoever – that’s really how it was!
I clearly remember this visit, since it was raining at the beginning, and while waiting for things to improve I sneaked into a local cake shop and stuffed a few pastries into my gut. After this my sticky fingers got cream and jam all over my Nikon…
Lots of fun!
