  14. At first sight, it looks like a building which could be found in many parts of the world . . . but the dome and the writing 'place it'. Interesting extensions to the upper floors too. I'm not sure they would look too good 'in real life' but, in a photo, they add to the interest when one looks around the image.

  22. This building appears to have an interesting shape. I guess it gets wider and wider as it it's further from the corner. Hmmm.
