      Goody, a quiz. I've missed these.

      Cupola in a square. I'd go for the lighting in a non-conformist church (if that's the correct word, although I believe Quakers call them a meeting house). I'd be tempted to opt for a bank, but there are cross motifs along the base. Go to Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris and you'll see what Mammon can do.

      Dome of a Muslim mosque? Aren't they the ones that purposefully put imperfections in their work, believing that only God is perfect?
      The darker squares on the lower right keep the symetry from perfection. Close???

      the places I've seen this was in a monastery ... a religious one! though I was not successful when I captured mine...

      This is absolutely stunning! My guess is it's from a church but I suspect I'm completely wrong!

      I don't know, but I'm hooked on symmetry - therefore, I love the perfectly framed circle in the square. Makes me feel giddy!!
      (I hope you get a chance to see my "TI" post today....)
