Photo Friday: "Camera Lens" Windows

I thought I'd try something entirely different for Photo Friday this week. Who can guess where these pictures were shot and explain what's special about this building? For bonus points, if you have a post about this building link to it in comments!

    I don't know the building but I love the shots. Will be checking back in later to find out where it is!

    Love these shots. looks like it's a mosque or something islamic???

    Is this the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris? We stayed right by there last summer. It's a beautiful spot with a library and a tea room.

    Not sure where it is, but I love the perspective of the photos!

    I have absolutely no clue! But I really love patterns and, thus, really love these photos!

    I would have said Istanbul but I think Mara may have it right with Paris (because I KNOW you've been there!). Really beautiful photos, none-the-less.

    I'm pretty sure it's Paris, as I visited this building years ago. I loved the way the apertures opened and closed, just like on a camera.

    Really great shots - so artistic. A great contribution to the theme!

    Definitely feeling like it's Islamic. But no idea where it is or what it is. It's beautiful though and I can't wait to find out!

    No idea about the location, but I always love photos that focus on architectural details like this.

    Really, no idea, but, I love the shot through the window.

    I like the perspective of the two people walking with such an amazing wall behind them. Very cool photos, and it kept us guessing!

    I can't work out where the photo is but it is striking. It has an Arab feel to it but that is the best I can manage. For my offering, enjoy the world's steepest street deep in the south of New Zealand's south Island in a beautiful English town of Dunedin.
