My house,
The aircraft bone yards in Arizona (?)
The off site nuke storage bunkers outside what used to be Carswell AFB.
Most any large city
Most any high detail unpopulated area
Disney world
Most any airport
Anywhere in Italy
London
NY,NY
The little (not anymore) farm town I spent some of my youth in
Coral Island, Blackpool
Central pier
South pier
West pier

Just about anyplace you look.  I get mesmerized by all of the detail available on GE.
