This is cool but can it be done with Google image search? I'd rather flip his bird at various sentient individuals, all of whom deserve it more than any building.

It's ability to get an image based on location, even one that pops up in the list as you enter it, is very hit or miss. The image shown has little or nothing to do with what you were seeking. But when it gets it more or less right, it's still funny.

Oh, that's not the Kremlin, it's St Basil's Cathedral, near the Kremlin.

I never travel but went to Chicago last year and made my wife take a picture of me giving Trump Tower the finger with both hands. I treasure it. It was also right after a very nice looking family took and unironic group selfie in front of it.
