Swimming with the Fishes on Google Maps
Google Street Scene is a Tumblr of iconic scenes from movies re-imagined as Google Street View images.
The scenes all seem to be stills taken from the original movies with the navigation aides from Google Maps Street View superimposed on top. At first I thought this was kind of fun but a little pointless. I do like that the name of each film isn't shown so you can try and guess the movie and click the 'source' link to see if your guess is correct.
I then noticed that each image also includes the address of the location where the actual scene from each film was shot. So if you are a complete Street View addict like me you can enter the address into Google Maps and view the location actually on Street View.
