Warped Bridges (Postcards from the Google Earth)

These bridges weren't built this way (although it would be fun to drive on them like on a roller-coaster). Google Earth's satellite imagery distorted the view, giving us this abstract art collage:

Dragon to Flower

This transforming piece of jewelry is the work of Japanese designer Tomoo Yamaji. The fierce face of a dragon (preventing evil with its fierce face and roar) changes into flower symbols and bringing peace; see the steps of transformation here.

It's not the satellite imagery that's distorting the views in Google Earth, but that Google Earth doesn't understand the concept of a bridge, and renders the satellite image down onto the terrain surface

@Dragon to Flower:

"The fierce face of evil"??!

Oriental dragons are not evil -contrary to western ones-, they are deities, and "traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck"!

I believe that the Google Earth problem stems with issues regarding draping a 2D image or photo over a 3D triangulated irregular network. This can be a common problem in GIS.

Thank you Charlie - we changed the text to better reflect the words of the artist: "When we are threatened by evil, "it" will appear before us in the form of the dragon and prevent the evil with its fierce face and roar then bring peace to us. After that, "it" will transform into the form of the flower to continue quietly watching our peaceful life."
