France Post 4 - Hungry for Color

I could not get enough of the light and color in the Mediterranean seaside town of Collioure (pronounced kaa·lyoor ).

The narrow streets were lined with simple yet tastefully colored buildings.

The colors were often paired in graceful combinations – sometimes subtle,

sometimes stark.

On the street level or looking up, there were aesthetically-pleasing combinations everywhere.

Plants and flowers enhanced entrances

or cascaded over windows and walkways.

Wave motifs appeared often on doorways and windows.

The narrow streets were lined with color. 

I was hungry for color and found it everywhere.
