12 Postcards From The Freaky Side of Google Earth

Throughout his quest for interesting pictures he’s stumbled upon images where Google’s seamless and accurate representation of the Earth’s surface breaks down, creating warped and surreal representations of actual places.

The slideshow above shows some of the most surreal images that Valla has collected in a gallery he calls “Postcards From Google Earth.”
