Parringshire - The Capital

Sign in to follow this  



Parringshire, though the capital of The Commonwealth of St. George, Is like most other regions of the islands in terms of population, commerce, etc. With most of it's land occupied by farm and flower fields, Residential zoning makes up less then an eighth of the overall area and is calling for expansion. However, because of the current economic recession, the Prime Minister has halted all plans of developement in the near future and the town remains as is... for now. A few pictures of the main commerce district / suburbs can be seen below, including one of the famed National Design and Architecture Senior Highschool - or NDASH.



Because Parringshire is the capital of The Commonwealth of St. George, the main political facilities / complexes are located within the boundaries of the town. The most notable of these,Capitol House, Is reflective of old english architecture and was built in the late 17th century by early settlers. The building, containing the main courthouses and offices' of ministers, is also surrouned by a moat and lush gardens which stand out dominately against the flowerfields in the background.


Though the town of Parringshire is a beautiful place, it is uncomparable to the natural landscapes and farmaland of which it occupies - such as the marvellous sunflower fields which have nearly defined the town to the international public. Because of this defining commonality throughout the capital, many a feature have been named after these flowers, such as the very coastline it posesses as well as the island's main freeway - named simply the Sunflower Expressway (II405). The freeway, titled repeatedly by Travelocity as the most beautiful / interesting scenic highway, has believe it or not become one of the most popular tourist attractions throughout the nation after only the island outlining Atlantis Coast Drive.

Amazing - but the images are really bright, and don't seem as realistic as darker toned images. Is that to do with your Photoshopping?

Probably - for some of them i kind of aimed to make it seem as if the sun was facing directly towards the buildings. Anyways, I'll try to darken them up in the future.
