Shannonia
So there was this kid once, way back in the day, he used to go around naming cities after himself. Sounds like a plan.
About this creation
With three large projects currently stalled in various stages of incompletion, I figured I needed to change focus: think small. I've long been intrigued by the various microscale creations by talented MOCers out there, but this is my first foray into the microscale world. So welcome to the few square blocks at the north end of Shannonia's Oceanside Strip, famed in story and song...

   The Shannonia Chamber of Commerce recommends starting your tour at the city's most striking visual landmark, the Honeybee Casino. To the left, the new Trancequility Club has quickly become the city's hottest nightspot.

   Don't get too crazy, though. That there's the courthouse, home of the Man.



Enlarge image
   I can crush a good chunk of your downtown core along with its sweet, juicy tax base in the palm of my hand. Damn right you name the city after me.



Enlarge image
   Reputed to be the site of the log cabin where the illustrious town founder was born. Now a tacky curio and memorabilia shop.



Enlarge image
   The Monolith Hotel. Big, ugly, cheap. Average Yahoo traveler's rating: 2 stars.



Enlarge image
   Shannonia Public Library and Shannonia Art Museum. In the foreground are beachside surf shops/taco stands/whatever.



Enlarge image
   We recommend the helicopter tour for the best views of the city.



Enlarge image
   The venerable Oceanview Inn, a historic landmark. 24 fully appointed luxury suites, second home to the rich and famous everywhere. Average waiting list time: 6-8 months.



Enlarge image
   Heading north on Ocean Avenue. Not named after that "other" Shannon, though he likes to impress people at parties by saying it is.



Enlarge image
   The ever-popular "police helicopter shining a powerful searchlight down onto Oceanview Park looking for drug deals" shot.



Enlarge image
   The Saturn Tower revolving restaurant: making patrons ill by spinning too fast since 1984.



Enlarge image
   Second Avenue, looking out to sea. I thought about trying my hand at some sort of sunset mosaic to put behind the MOC. But I didn't think very hard about it.



Enlarge image
   The obligatory skyline shot, available on postcards in every shop and lobby in town.



Enlarge image
   Nice view of the Monolith looming over everything.



Enlarge image
   (insert witty caption here)



Enlarge image
   And let's not forget our lovely strip malls!



Enlarge image
   Before you leave, be sure to make time to visit the Temple of the Brick, one of the holiest sites in Shannonia.

   On behalf of the citizens of Shannonia, the Chamber of Commerce says thank you,hope you enjoyed your stay, come again, and tell your friends!

Quoting Chris Forehand Did you worry about scale of buildings?
I do not. As long as each particular building looks good on its own and isn't too much out of whack with its neighbors, it's good enough for me. If it helps you to stick with a "1 stud = X feet or meters" formula, go for it. I can't build that way.

Not my scale, but it is an excellent job. You managed to cram an incredible amount of detail into the design - so much so that when I first looked at the thumbnail I thought it was a minifig scale design. Beyond good for your first attempt; however, if you keep setting the bar this high for yourself... Lee.

Very impressive detail on such a small scale. I'm interested in the photography technique you used. How did you get such detailed close-ups without losing focus?
