From Above

Yesterday Wired Magazine ran an article about a project to photograph the entire coast of California. At first I thought, “that’s cool” and checked a out a picture or two. Then I realized that I used to live across the street from the Pacific Ocean, so I found a picture of my old house (the white one across form the vacant lot and giant trees). I like the aerial imagery provided by mapquest, and Earth Viewer is even cooler (well worth the download – I noticed this being used a lot on television news reports about the D.C. sniper), but these (which rely on satellite photographs) don’t come near the quality of the California Coastal Records Project. My favorite so far is this one that looks down Fulton Street at the Richmond District and Golden Gate Park.
