New landscape - American Town

Post by par » Mon Mar 07, 2016 10:53 am

Hi, friends!
We are working on a new landscape - an american town.
Help us with critics and ideas.
What do you like on the picture?
What do you hate?
Any ideas?
Does it look like town in the US?
We have not come of with the name yet, how would you call it?

Hi Pasha,

I love the Blue House with the porch!
I notice a Dish for TV on 2 houses
and an antenna on another!

I enjoy taking pictures of our country windmills.
I love the windmill.

The Grecian Pillars are correct!

The High School speed limit is a minor issue.
Residential areas are 25 mph.
But when children are going to school or coming home from school,
the speed limit is 20 mph.
So I do not know how you would show that.

One building is missing. Dairy Queen!

This is just a suggestion.
Canada and the USA are almost twins.
This could be a town in Ontario, Canada or Ohio, USA.
But Canada is kilometers.

I have not come up with a name yet.

:good:

Hi Pasha,

Just a thought for a name.

You traveled Route 66 across the USA.
You have a statue of a cowboy.
So this has to be a memory that you have of Route 66.

Just an idea.

Thank you, Marty!

Route 66 is good.
Vally has proposed YoVille.
I like Americana.
I will be thinking the name.

Is Diary Queen is a snack place?

Hi Pasha,

Dairy Queen used to be a little white building with a window.
You would go to the window and get soft ice cream that was swirled.

Now, like everything else, it is a big fast food restaurant.

But the original little white building is what I liked.
Good ice cream, also.

Now I understand :)

When I was a kid at the Soviet times, there used to be a places like that as well here. That were good times.

Hi Pasha,

Not every town in the USA has a nuclear power plant by it.
I have to drive to Lake Erie or the Ohio River to see those smoke stacks.

But every town has a water tower.
The water tower usually has the name of the town on it.

I would replace the nuclear smoke stacks with a water tower.
See the attached for ideas.

I thought they may be nuclear power plants. I agree with Marty......every town has a water tower, usually with the name of the town. I would get rid of the smoke stacks.

Yes, we are going to remove the Nuclear power station and add water tower.
Thanks for the help, guys!
