Has Georgia been Visited by the “9 Eyes”

Now, I know you came here expressly to learn what precisely the “9 Eyes” are. To quell any fear that it is a giant mutated spider, or more red light traffic cameras, the “9 Eyes” are, in fact, an allusion to the Google Street View camera. Now, keep in mind, some of the images are probably not the most appropriate, but most give a real view of what street life is from Newnan, to New York City, to Bangladesh.
I remember when Google introduced that they would be photographing each street and address in the world, my first thought was, “There’s no way they could do that!” My second thought was, “I wonder what those cameras would actually catch?” To provide an example, a friend, who’s in a band, said he was wanting to set up all of his equipment in his driveway for a “Live Band” photo. Naturally, I just laughed and said something fairly generic and we moved the discussion on to another topic. I had forgotten all about his idea until I ran across a website that is collecting an impressive compilation of Google Street View images. From the beautiful to the bizarre, the website 9-eyes.com looks through the two eyes of Google Street View; the site is nothing but the “best” pics from Google’s roving army.

I thought it was not just impressive, but it also turned out, for me, to be a great way to take a break from rigorous work day and see what life is like somewhere else in  the world. I just wanted to share these really fascinating pictures with you. They truly get the imagination going. Plus, if you keep in mind that these pictures were taken in the streets while everyday activities were happening, that just makes them all the more intriguing.

Any comments on these pictures? I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing the images as much as I did.
