I earlier showed a photo of the Allegheny County Soldier’s Memorial building in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  From a distance you could see the square design of the building and the grey pyramidal roof.  Then I walked closer and took this photograph very close up to the building which seems like a totally different place.  I did not correct for the extreme wide angle lens as I liked the distortion.  In this view you cannot see the squareness of the building or the roof at all.  You can see the entrance now with the memorial plaques up front and the soldier statue.   The original view of the building is at the bottom for comparison.

Original view of the same building from further away.  Seeing it from an angle makes it look more “3D”:
