More great (satellite?) imagery

I call this one “Center of Gravity.” MC Escher would be proud.

Well, okay, most of it was probably taken from an airplane flying at
about 5000 ft. That’s why the downtown L.A. imagery is so patchwork.
While it makes for a vertigo-inducing feeling Hitchcock would be proud
of, I can’t help but think, “what are they thinking?!” What you really
need is a super high altitude super high resolution super long lens that
will give a persistent perspective across an area large enough not to
skew the view on an area held on computer screen. Like a satellite. But
any pictures are better than none, even if there is a perspective
mismatch.
