Stork in Flight


Google Street View

Somewhere on an unnamed road  near Las Conchas, Santa Cruz, Bolivia

Though not a very sharp picture but I think it is the first find of a stork in flight captured by Google Street View camera. From the adjoining frames it looks it was a short hop flight.


Big Edge - A Sculpture Made of Boats


An eye catching sculpture at a roundabout opposite Vdara Hotel & Spa, City Center, Las Vegas.

The sculpture created by Artist Nancy Rubins is called "Big Edge" and was created using more than 200 aluminum canoes, rowboats and flat-bottomed boats hung togather by stainless steel wires.

Cyclisk - An Oblisk Made of Bicycles


Google Street View

A beautiful sculpture in Santa Rosa, California made out of about 340 bicycles and one tricycle.

Created by Northern California artists Mark Grieve and Ilana, ironically it is right in the vicinity of several car dealers.

As per wired.com it could be a "tribute to the way car culture has sacrificed more eco-friendly bicycle culture? A memento mori for industrial civilization? A reminder that riding your bicycle is both healthier and cheaper than driving a car?"

The artist Mark Grieve however explains that "The statement is up to the viewer and hopefully the work is an intersection of ideas, so it can keep growing with the community....... When a person brings to a piece his/her own interpretation, the piece is 'working' for the community."

Red Umbrellas


When I found this in Google Street View my first impression was that these have been custom laid for the GSV car. A search on the Net however revealed that these were part of the an art installation for Paris Nuit Blanche - an annual all-night arts festival.
