I tried to find the reflecting pool in the first picture, but google was not cooperating, it kept returning that square in Bordeaux. Lille, Lyon, or maybe somewhere in Paris?

I finally found where the previous pictures were taken using google earth and panoramio: the first one is on Place de la Republique and the second one is that quay in La Confluence neighborhood. I had checked a list of streets and squares in Lyon, but Place de la Republique was not featured on it although it's among the city's most central squares. Anyway...

No to all. I know it looks like an Andean city or a large slum in a Latin American country, but it's not in that area.

I think all of those high-quality aerial pictures are taken from smaller aircrafts like for example Cessna 172, where you have a much better view out of the window.
