A while back I was thinking about how the scenery tends to repeat itself out here in the hinterlands. Every two miles you have a McDonald’s. Every 3 blocks you have a Walgreens. Every other store is one that sells matresses.
So I ran off and started a project that utilizes a fantastic obsession of mine: Google Street View
Running on the latest and greatest of algorithms, automation, machine learning, big data and other popular keywords I have and am compiling a list of all fast food restaurants in the US (for now) along with the Google Street View image associated with that address.
I autopost about 11ish a day to a tumblr that you can find here - Street View Fast Food
