    I liked scrolling in on areas and seeing ghost people due to the seconds of difference that each image took to take to create this monster of an image. Great stuff man. It's really neat that you can zoom all the way into windows of houses that are like a mile away.

    That's what I found quite amazing about this. It's really cool but at the same time quite scary. You never know who, where, or when could be spying on you!

    If you read the article it has a fairly basic explanation. It's roughly about 12K photos stitched together. But I myself would be quite interested in finding out how exactly this can be done. It definitely doesn't look easy.

    They took 12,000 shots from a canon 7D and merged the images together.

    I'm not fibbing when I say I found "waldo" in literally 3 seconds :p

    Hint: Look at the angel of the shingles on the house, it will give you great insight as to what side of the picture the individual is on ;)
