    Fantastic photos, and brilliant photo subject idea, but only recognise one of them – The Queen’s House at Greenwich, London, but would be really nice to know where the others are, so we can all go and view them for ourselves!

    The top one looks like the double helix at the Vatican Museums.

    The Spiral Staircase in the Vatican Museum, with a Christmas Tree at the bottom. It was designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932. It is shaped like a double helix, made of two intertwined spirals; one leading down and the other upwards.
