2325 Boulevard Luis A. Ferré Aguayo, Ponce, 00717, Puerto Rico

Stockholm, Sweden
Among the city's windows, I saw many beautifully designed items to wear as well as to decorate homes. Who knew opening an umbrella indoors was not bad luck as long it helps illuminate your dining room?
Save Place

111 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA
This bowed silver building stands out among the skyscrapers of Downtown L.A. (though it now has an equally interesting-looking neighbor in the Broad). Those stainless-steel curves have a purpose, though. Architect Frank Gehry designed the...
