Google Maps: Two Seasons, One Picture

2132.This is the kind of unintentional nifty that makes me smile and laugh a little.

That's summer on the left of South Arizona Street, and winter to the right.

I love this photo. Two seasons in one photograph FTW.

Here's a link so you can go see it yourself.
