I took the picture above, on March 25, 2007, back when I first got my Nikon D40 DSLR camera. This was the Falmouth Court House as it looked back then. Then there was no Falmouth Cruise Ship Port (that came in 2010), so the town was not yet getting much attention.
Fast track to April 6, 2011, which is 4 years later. The cruise ship is in town and the Falmouth Court House has been repainted in a vivid shade of yellow. Tents are erected out front to sell craft and other products to the cruise ship visitors.
Do you prefer the old look of the court house with its pastel shade or the more modern, saturated colours of the paint job below?
