An Ode to Street View

Street View can be so beautiful. It can raise your spirits and at times it can break your heart.

If Lord Byron was alive today he would no doubt have written an Ode to Street View. Unfortunately the poet never got the chance to play with Google Maps and was forced to trudge the world for real.

It falls to me therefore to bring together the poetry of George Gordon Byron and Google Maps Street View. Ode to Street View marries three poems (by Byron, Wordsworth and William Leighton) with images from Street View.

Just scroll up and down Ode to Street View to read the poems and view some beautiful images of Venice, London and Florence (this will probably only work on desktops).
