Kotor, Montenegro. October, 2012

The town of Kotor clings to a small strip of bayside coast, huddled at the foothills of some mighty impressive and forbidding mountains. Fortified by walls and ramparts built from stone from those mountains, it was only penetrable by water, thus providing a safe, if cramped, haven for centuries. The town itself is also built from stone, as seen here in one of dozens of small squares that appear suddenly as you follow alleyways and turn corners throughout the day.
