Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge

We have no idea where exactly this is (lack of map data makes it a little tricky to work out), but check out the totally cool bridge somewhere in Brazil! Best shadow yet I think. If anyone knows what and…

Street View Competitors, Part 1

Google Street View may be ever-expanding in its reach, but it’s still a long way from covering the entire world. There are numerous services that not only offer their own street-level imagery but have beaten Google to the punch in numerous cities around the globe.
