PhotoHunt: Painted

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Painted." Burano is an island in the Venetian lagoon that's famous for its brightly painted houses. It's a happy island, about a 45-minute boat ride away from Venice, and is a fun place to visit...

I stumbled across this corte when I was wandering around Burano. It's very touching that they chose to remember 9/11 this way. It's a quiet little corte and no one was around except for a cute little tabby cat....
