Google Street View is great for getting the look and feel of a location, but sometimes you get a little more than you bargained for. That's precisely what artist Jon Rafman uncovered while scouring Google for unexpected views — going way beyond directions — for his project Nine Eyes of Google Street View. Named for the nine pole-mounted cameras on Google's fleet of electric cars, the photos are screenshots of remarkable events captured by accident during Google's routine documentation. After uncovering many surprising scenes, from a startled moose to a robbery in progress, Jon recognized that "with its supposedly neutral gaze, the Street View photography had a spontaneous quality unspoiled by the sensitivities or agendas of a human photographer." • See more: 9-Eyes (Images: 9-eyes.
