The Most Interesting Images from the Google Street View Camera
During lockdown, because we can’t travel as much, we’re looking for new ways to see the world.
I wrote recently about the wonderful WindowSwap – Open a New Window Somewhere in the World.
Another way to virtually see the world is with Google Maps.
Today, you can drop in on almost any street in the world and explore the stitched-together panoramic images.
Back in 2008 (a year after Google Street View was introduced), artist and filmmaker Jon Rafman began to collect and curate screenshots of images from Google Street View.
Rafman’s web-site, 9-Eyes, displays some of the most amazing images that Google Street View has captured!
The images Rafman has curated range from the intriguing…
… to the amazing…
… to the downright bizarre!
If you’re looking for an interesting distraction, then go and see what you can find on 9-Eyes — Google Street View Camera!
