Google's Street view allows you to delve into any area of the world, and experience some of the strangest sights ever. We've picked out our favourite fun and in some cases unexplainable pictures.
The Google Street View version of The Bill
Viewing this Street View from Seattle, Washington, you can almost imagine yourself in the middle of an episode of The Bill.
What lurks above
Finding airplanes in Google Earth has become a near-obsession with aviation buffs. In Google Street View the obsession continues on a more down-to-earth scale. Here we see an airplane flying above Airway Heights, Washington.
The roads can get pretty treacherous in Western Australia, and sometimes you need to make a pit stop. Here in Paraburdoo you can see there aren't too many options. It appears the Google Street View's automobile is getting some work done at a local garage that looks like a scene ripped out of the Dukes of Hazzard TV show.
A Street with a view
If you've run across these Street Views thinking you've just stumbled upon Twilight Zone Lane, you are not alone. But these Street Views are fake and were created in May 2008 by artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley, who invited Google to capture an elaborate staged scene in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Participants from around the city staged scenes ranging from a parade, a band rehersing, a seventeenth-century sword fight, a marathon, a heroic rescue, and more. The Street View project was named aptly A Street With a View.
