Edinburgh Castle
I've been here. I'm going here in the summer. Edinburgh is a beautiful city.

Saint Michel, Normandy, France.
It's the smallest municipality in France with only 44 inhabitants. It's basically this town situated on a small island. A chapel was built on the island as early as year 708.

Kumbhalgarh Fort, India

I love this thread by the way. I'm looking for some more unique modern settings compared to anicent/fantasy, if anyone knows of some. I should probably travel. Edit: Looking back at the thread it's pretty even in culture, nature and style, but things like city streets, gas stations, strange houses etc.

@unsilentwill - By modern do you mean cities and stuff?

That link's deformed a bit - here's the right one. Also, an amazing picture from the Wikipedia page of the walled city, showing a rare patch of sunlight. Hard to believe someplace like that actually existed in real life.

Especially when you realize that its estimated population density in 1987, according to Wikipedia, was 1,255,000/km2. Imagine that - over 30,000 living in just a couple of acres. Also according to Wikipedia, the rooftops were an often-used gathering place. Quite inspiring, if I do say so myself (though obviously not a place I'd even remotely consider living in).

Some of those really remind me of Tekkonkinkreet (click the link for more images) for some reason:

Funny how you say that. I initially found Tekkonkinkreet through its soundtrack, thinking that any movie with its music couldn't possibly be bad. On the playlist I made, one of the songs from Tekkonkinkreet was beautified by an art piece made by Imperial City Boy. They really did fit each other. (

)

All of this is downright incredible and awe-inspiring. I can't stop looking. Seriously.

Halong Bay, Vietnam.

It feels very isolated and surreal when there's mist and all you can see is nearby mountains.
