So, there's a Vegas trip coming up in my distant future. I hit Google Maps to figure out how to get to the hotel when what did I see in the satellite view but this odd looking set of buildings. From closer to the ground you get an entirely different view (and a hefty price tag).
It's called Turnberry Place, and whoever assembled the overhead shot for Google's database managed to turn four fairly normal highrises into a Dali-esqe image of leaning towers and nonsensical shadows. Though, it would be more fun to live in that way.

You'd think they'd redo an entire area all at once, though. And it's hard to believe that they couldn't fit all four of those buildings into a single frame, given that they do their photography from high altitude.
I'd love to know what the real story is, but I suspect we'll never find out.
