    A small quiet town in WV. Date unknown, name unknown.

    Looks like late 1950s or early 60s

    Nice photo's Lester- I especially like the hoppers looming ominously overhead in the second picture. Great job.

    Great downtown scene. I love downtown viaducts and those venician blinds. Did you make those?

    It's really great that you can get down to eye-level for your shots, and best of all, have them come out in sharp focus. :thumb: What color do you use for your bricks?

    Ralph's for fun!

    Looks great! Classic small town scenes. I especially like the store that is nearly under the bridge. I've seen places like that all over. You use florist foam for bridge supports, right? They look very convincing to me.

    Zebob. If I remember correctly the blinds are only piece of paper cut to size, then use pen & straight edge to make lines on it. glue it at the top and let it hang.

    UP SD40-2 the side walk is gray foam sheets from AC Moore.

    Miles the brick is just water base white paint thinned out . Spray wet water on wall and use small brush to pick up the very thin paint. Touch the brush to the wall and watch capillary action go.

    Ralf yes it is florist foam.
