google is watching

, Tuesday, May 17

"Two years ago, Google sent out an army of hybrid electric automobiles, each one bearing nine cameras on a single pole. Armed with a GPS and three laser range scanners, this fleet of cars began an endless quest to photograph every highway and byway in the free world."

Artist Jon Rafman has scoured google street views in search of incredible moments caught with these cameras. What he found is astonishing. He has collected a series of images that would easily slip into the files of the best street photographers out there. Great compositions and incredible moments have been captured spontaneously through technology. This makes me question the luck and timing of street photography. It also begs to question, "was I caught on street views doing something inappropriate?". I guess someone IS always watching, I knew it!
