A little light relief

"A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View."

I LOVE Google Street View. It is magic, to be able to visit places without going there. Handy for book research, too. I used it for Remix and Replica.

Lexi, the setting on Remix was really compelling so Google street view is obviously really useful!

Kitty, I thought it was sweet too!

Isn't that fantastic? I love the way the desk-lights are used.

Simon, I thought they were pretty cool too!

Street view can either be really helpful or really not depending on if the building you want was constructed at the time the street view was captured. Happens more often than I would think it should here in L.A.

Very fun video.

Sarah, I hadn't thought of that! There's not too much new building here or at least not of places I need to visit!
