I really wish I knew the story behind some of these images, especially the SUV wreck, with the man sitting at the edge of the roadway hanging his head in a pose of ultimate dejection.
On the one hand Google Street view is a testament to incredible technological power, giving us little still life glimpses of the huge world around us, but it still can't capture all the humanity of life and the many human interactions that happen every day on our planet.
#17 from the end looks like the creek near Google. I'm guessing those are some of the Google Street View people in the picture (one on scooter, one with visible badge, one mad scientist long haired type) :-).
Am not sure that everybody sees the same pictures. #17 from the end, for me, was a road going through wide-open prairie with a small hill in the background and a bison (?) in the foreground. No people at all.
Edit: Just reloaded. The ordering is definitely different, and it looked like some of the pictures were different too, though many were the same.
