Here are some pretty neat and also some thought provoking images collected from google street view. The one of the old man seems odd to me as does the one with the kid hiding. The old man looks out of place and the kid looks scared to me. But the dog makes up for some of the others in the laugh department!! Some of the people caught in the cameras view just plain don't look like they belong there to me, anyone else get that felling as well? Perhaps more time travelers?


Google Maps with Street View says on its website that it "lets you explore places around the world through 360-degree street-level imagery. You can check out restaurants, visit neighborhoods, or plan your next trip." Or, if you are Jon Rafman, you can use the service to capture unique, unexpected, artistic and sometimes disturbing pictures of people in unusual settings. Rathman's website, 9-eyes.com, gathers the pictures, and is forming a cult following. Check out the pictures and tell us what you think. We have no idea how the suited man (or is it a mannequin?) ended up on a lonely, rural lane. Why is the boy hiding behind the garbage can? We have no idea about that, nor why the reindeer is running down the road, or why Rafman - who blurs every person's face - decided to blur the face of an elephant. But you'll find that and much more in the collection. Be warned: 9-eyes contains many flipped birds and shiny moons of a decidedly non-lunar variety. If you're all right with that and you have time to kill, you know where to head.

I see stranger things on the street in real life every single day. Some of the pictures are pretty though.

The one with the old business man looks fake to me. As in photoshopped.
Maybe he did photoshop most of them. After all he did use something to blur the faces. So who knows. Thanks though.

Hopefully I don't get bashed...

For legal purposes Google has to blur the images of peoples faces...

Anyone else see the one with big foot sitting in the lake?

Here's your time traveler.



On a serious note, I don't think any time-travelers were caught on Google Street View.
Any one smart enough to have the capability of time travel would avoid those pesky cars.
It's common protocol, duh!

I will have to check that out because I know I was caught on street view in my backyard not sure if my face is blurred out though.

Edit: Yep looked at it again and I must have been too far away because you can't make out my features although not blurred out through image manipulation.

Cool thread!

It' hard to say if they are staged or not but I think the one with the old guy beside the country lane was beautiful. Many of them are thought provoking.
Thank's

Whoever selected those photos for the first "album", sure has a yen for prostitutes, poverty, and violence.

Sooooooo a Google van just happened to be at Sea World...????

Or on the banks of a river???

Fab pics, but some of them seem to be from a personal album rather than taken by a Google Street View van

Not sure but I know I have seen them traveling around lots of times. And I can only imagine the stuff they catch that's too racy to post up.

Indeed! I expect at some point there will be a more risque album somewhere. Kinda reminds me of a website which shows interesting or strange Google Earth locations

Lots of prostitutes and lots of dogs, and lots of litter.

The scenery picss are the only ones that aren't depressing.
