Project Assignment – First impressions of Falmouth in one picture (a year in)

Looking with fresh eyes can be difficult when a place starts to become familiar. I’ve been trying to step back in time to when I first moved to Penryn.

A traditional bowling green often suggests a lot about a town or suburb: old-folks, slow pace, community spirit, whites and blazers. This I’d say was my initial impression of Penryn and Falmouth.

First impressions aren’t necessarily accurate. After a year, it is clear that Penryn and Falmouth do not hold the quintessential stereotype I once gave them. However, when the Penryn hill starts to decline, I never fail to be impressed by the beautiful views overhead that lead me to the road to Falmouth.
