Okay not really a skyline... might disqualify me as i may not be following the rules. More of a geographic location.

Ok, now I’m confused. I was pretty sure it’s was the South Pole (I had a colleague who worked BICEP2 which is next door to NOAA) and the picture looks identical to the one on NOAA’s web site:


Must be same modular building somewhere else?

I think Ckuhns found a mis-labled copy of that photo, the flags and signs are identical to the one on the NOAA's website.

This happens to me too many times... I know I recognise a place (or think I do) but can't name it in detail. I was with work to India for some 5-6 years ago and we visited a place looking very much like that. A temple? But do I remember anything more? nope...

@3 Dawg Night got it, you're up!
Once you mentioned that there were two spectacular buildings in the picture, I noticed the Taj Mahal in the background!

Here's a picture that I took when I visited my cousin about a year ago. You've likely all seen this building before.

Bullocks Wilshire building on Wilshire Blvd in LA.

I know it because I lived in LA for three years, but I'm curious why you think we've all seen it?

Plus, the light in that picture looks distinctly LA. I'm guessing the picture was taken early evening?

@duncan.brown is right on! Yes, that picture was taken in the early evening, on the way to supper. My cousin graduated from Southwestern Law School, which now owns the building. The building was used for the exterior shots of the apartment building in the final scene in "Ghostbusters." In addition, Aerosmith filmed their "Love in an Elevator" video in the lobby (and elevators).

Ah that's right! I never made that connection for some reason!

I was also today days old before I finally clicked that it's "Wilshire Blvd" and not "Wiltshire Blvd," despite having lived in LA. My brain has been autocorrecting it to the name of the English county all this time...

Here's the next one. Ignore my daughter on the right of the picture, but the rest of the foreground is also a clue.
