    Wow, that was really awesome.

    You don't get to appreciate such things when you're on the ground all day long.

    I forget which Native American tribe, but they made large glyphs on the ground that were meant to be seen from the sky. They're from the Louisiana area I think. Mound builders, maybe? But the weird part is that there were no airplanes back then.

    Maybe they're for our extraterrestrial friends.

    Edit- It'd be nice if he put a small description in every photo though.

    I'd like to know where he shot some of them, just to get a sense of where I am.

    There is a glyph or whatever somewhere of a monkey in a place I believe that there are no monkeys.

    That one causes anthropologists some trouble - does anyone have more detail about it?

    Wow. I've only been to one of those places, and I've never seen it from above. *sigh*
    ps Former Soviet satellites are depressing as hell

    Maybe its inspiration was a human...?

    Never heard of it, if it was based on another primate.

    Yes, they are depressing.

    And the deforestation ones.

    I don't think that I've even been to any of the places in the photos, nonetheless seeing it from the sky.

    I think this is what you mean:

    Exaggeration is a bad thing. In fact, it is the root of all evil in this world
