There's a lot of painting going on in Old Town and I can't decide if it's a good thing or not. I happen to really love the look of the plastered buildings as the old paint flakes off to reveal underneath layers of colour.
Plus I love the golden look of the whitewashed buildings when the sun shines on them. But a crew of painters is slapping new paint on some of these treasures and I'm not liking it much.
This building is so beautiful with its golden tones. Now with the new purple and green paint it just looks like another painted building to me.
Then there's this one that had weathered to a soft multi-coloured hue like green tea ice cream.
Last week it was transformed to baby blue and white.
Maybe I'm just being too precious in my aesthetic. What do you think?
These buildings are vacant and in need of restoration. If this is the first step to protecting them, I'm for it. But I wish they'd consulted me about the colour schemes.
