    Google Street View: Odd Object In The Picture

    What do you make of this:



    Looks odd at first sight but I think that the correct answer is posted early in the thread on Reddit.

    However it might be more fun to have a punt at what it COULD be.

    Looking at the bottom of the cloud it looks like someone was playing with the image in photoshop and did a poor job of smudging it.

    It is a stick which has intruded into the picture. It looks odd because it is so close to the lens and because the picture you see is a composite of several pictures stitched together [so the branch/twig/stick appears to be hovering in mid air]
