Three timepoints

This is the building on top of which the fairy sits. To the left is my own photo, and the fairy is visible on top with some difficulty due to the strong backlight. Beyond the fairy, the entire front of the building is decorated with a vine going all the way to the top.

Out of curiosity I looked for the corresponding images in the "street view" of Google maps. Interestingly the photo is from when the building was still incomplete. Not only that, but the satellite image itself is from before they started construction! No wonder I had a hard time finding the location at first.

So, here are three timepoints in the story of this building.
