Barcelona, a photo a day

May Day: Theme Day!


Right, here we go again: the monthly theme day. Which caused a dilemma… Yep, what to post??? Barcelona mailboxes are big, ugly and yellow. Boring. People’s mailboxes are a bit more inventive, but I don’t have a single photo in my archive. Not feeling too well at the moment, going out for a photo shoot is not really an option.
So, here it is: a smiling green mailbox on the biutiful (!!!) island of Burano, in Venice’s laguna (with a little wink to our friends in Luxembourg).
It’s the orange house that did it! Wouldn’t you love living in an orange house???

  6. One could stay a week in Burano just to get all of the colors and scenes… Great post for the theme day, and no one is disappointed today that you ventured out of Barcelona to show us this stunning orange house in Italy!

  10. Oh how I love Burano – well any part of Venice. A wonderful choice. Actually I've seen boxes like this around Menton – perhaps it's a European thing. Do hope you feel better soon.

  14. Burano is as colorful a collection of houses as exists anywhere. They told us that the fishermen used left over paint from the hulls of their fishing boats to paint their houses.
