I usually try to avoid straight up reblogging off of Dangerous Minds, seeing as how our tastes align so much that I’d be doing it daily. But today they sent me off towards 9eyes, a tumblog that collects Google Streetview shots, in all their weirdness, pain and moments of sublime pathos.
Beyond how common it is to spy hooligans flipping the bird, streetwalkers streetwalking and people of all ages hitting the pavement, there’s something great about the selections that suggest a grander story. Stolen moments that would otherwise dissolve into the ether, now immortalized, hinting at a greater depth. Someone should do an illustrated edition of short stories with one Streetview shot per.
Give yourself 10 minutes and browse through it all over at 9eyes.
