I spent my last day in Collioure walking up and down the multi-leveled streets and passageways and all the nooks and crannies beyond them. I photographed the pastel painted fronts of houses, which in any other context would be garish, but somehow in Collioure they were charming and painter like. As usual I was obsessed with the doors and entranceways to the small houses as I madly clicked my camera. At the end of the day a stunning sunset took me by surprise and it was a breathtaking finale to my stay in Collioure.
