Rural Street View

Google Street View, Oct. 2008
Need a challenge? Try using your clipping tool to extract stills from stretches of rural American highways on Google Street View. As of 2016, thousands of miles of rural American roads have yet to be included in Street View at all. Those that are have been surveyed by the nine eyes only once, usually back in 2008, when Street View in its infancy had cameras with much worse resolution than those it uses today.

The derivational photos below reveal their stories in spite of these handicaps. You're far from the glitz and show of the cities. Another world materializes.
