This post is the first of many from our trip to Italy. The town of Burano is a hidden gem. I learned of this location during our layover at JFK on our way to Italy. I was sitting next to a guy and noticed he had some nice Nikon equipment. I started some small talk with this gentleman and discovered I was talking with photographer icon Jay Maisel. Jay is no small name in the photography industry…he has been shooting for over 50 years and has been named a “master of light” and one of the “30 most influential photographers of the decade”. I couldn’t believe this opportunity. It was an honor speaking with him. During our quick chat, he asked where we were going in Italy. I told him we were going to Venice, it was then he told me of an island which was a couple of hours away by boat (Burano). He touted it as one of the most beautiful places in the world to photograph. After my visit, I concur…it is truly an amazing place to visit. Burano is the most colorful place I’ve ever been. It was like walking around in a box of crayons. Every color imaginable was there.
