A Little Close

Go to this satellite image and zoom in on London’s Russell Square to see something a bit scary. I certainly don’t recall seeing anything coming in quite that low when I was staying in that neighbourhood. (I’d be less surprised if it were San Diego.)


I just thought of a possible explanation. It has to do with the way perspective works in photographs taken at great distances. But I don’t know enough about the subject to know whether it applies in this case.
