Earth.. A bird's eye view.

 

'Earth' is the May theme day subject for City Daily Photo bloggers around the world. Another tricky one that sent me off on a tangent :) Mapping the streets of the earth from a satellite was designed by Danish brothers Lars and Jens Rasmussen. The birds eye street view, note birds included top right :) has helped me out more than once, how about you. Below one my favourite old guardians of the earth, magnificent trees with roots desperately trying to hold things together. Looking forward to seeing how other CDP'ers interpreted this theme. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

  4. The tree is impressive. I was looking at a place yesterday on Streetview, and fittingly for the kind of people who live there, the saved image featured two police cars out front.

  5. I've seen that Google maps car a couple of times before. Once was in Italy when I was walking the streets of Bolzano. And, yes I've used those maps and street views many times. Sometimes I do it just for fun! I LOVE that tree. That is a great tribute to our planet.

  6. Your Google Earth photo is perfect for the theme. That is a magnificent ancient tree well worth being honored on Earth Day.

  12. Two interesting interpretations of the theme. Oh yes, I've often checked Street View to see if villages looked interesting places to visit - and also to see how much parking might be available. When they passed my place of work they caught one of my colleagues (face blurred but clearly identifiable) sitting outside enjoying a crafty cigarette!

  14. I hate to think how many hours I've spent with Google Satellite and Street View. Google Maps has a great feature now where you pan around with your camera and it will identify where you are and which was you are facing. Great with you pop up to earth from an underground trains station and not be sure which way you are facing, or if you've been abducted and dumped in a strange place.

    Love the tree.. to Mother Earth!

  17. Once in France I also came across the Google maps car filming as we were coming out of a restaurant :)
    Great tree!

  18. Oh that tree.... wonderful.
    I was filmed once on my street by a car for Apple maps... whatever that is.

  19. Dearest Grace,
    We also have encountered the Google Maps Street View car. As a matter of fact, our rental car, parked in the carport of our best friends got captured!
    Wow, what a buttressed tree trunk! Just like in my post: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2021/04/bogor-indonesia-botanical-garden-and.html
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  23. GPS is one of the greatest inventions ever. So much easier than large bulky paper maps that always tear. I love modern technology!
