Sunday’s a good day for eye candy, don’t you think? Assuming you already read the title of this post, no we’re not about to post 18 photos of Ryan Gosling looking awesome. We are, however, here to serve up a whole bunch of outrageously colorful buildings from all over the world. Color block month continues!
