It's surely been many, many years since Burano was anything other than a major tourist draw, but even so it felt much more inhabited and normal than anywhere we went in Venice. The architecture is pretty modest here and there aren't many major sights--the colors are the draw. It felt like Mexico meets Venice. And the lace! Some of it was very beautiful (and very expensive), some of it was quite cheap but lower quality, but I've never been anywhere with more needlework.
This was the best weather we had in the three days we were in Venice and environs. My sister had told us to save Burano for last, because it's hard to go back to Venice after Burano. She was right.

The colours are certainly bright, and not what you might choose for decor on your own house.
I like your P.O.V.as the curve of the houses leads my eye right into the picture.

And you've photographed this very well, love the view
wit the quai, the boats and the colours on the houses
