If something appears to be a little odd about this reflection, then you are not mistaken.

We all know the people at the Louvre in Paris did not invent the pyramid, but they built an impressive glass version to house their underground entrance.

This wavy building in New York City is no trick of the special effects artist. Designed by the world famous architect, Frank Gehry, it certainly stands out among all the straight-sided apartment blocks found everywhere else.
Skyscrapers were first built during the growth of American cities such as New York and Chicago in the late 1800s and the early 1900s.
Or were they?
Shibam in Yemen built multistory clay edifices a thousand years ago.
This hotel looks like it has been photoshopped onto the wide Canadian vista.
