High-rise villa, algae blooms, Florida sinkhole, optical illusions and more.
Aug. 13, 2013 A privately built villa, surrounded by imitation rocks, is pictured on the rooftop of a 26-story residential building in Beijing. A resident in the building has spent more than six years to construct the villa, according to local media. Other residents have complained, fearing its weight might cause structural collapse. The owner, only known as “Professor Yang,” has been instructed to tear down the illegal structure, according to property managers. Jason Lee/Reuters Buy Photo
