Sometimes when I’m traveling, I like to pretend that people from my distant past have come into possession of some science-fictiony device that allows them to tap into my optic nerve and see exactly what I see.
Then I imagine — if they used the device right now to peer out of my eyes, what would they see? Would they be able to figure out where I am?
This game is most fun when I’m kicking around a place where the landscape doesn’t match popular perceptions of the region at large. I might even purposefully select a field of view that makes it most difficult for them to determine my location.
The images below depict 14 such places, 14 such views. Bet you can’t guess where they are.
