Google Maps Street View can often capture people up to all sorts of bizarre activities
Google Maps Street View has become an unlikely source for the weird and wonderful in recent years. Although ostensibly a useful geographical tool, Google Maps can also prove very entertaining. It can often capture people up to all sorts of bizarre activities.
Unfortunately for those snapped by the Google lens, the outcome can be unflattering.
This appeared to be the case for one unfortunate woman.
She was photographed enjoying an afternoon out at the seaside.
It’s not known where in the world she is but she can be seen standing on a rocky shoreline.

Google Maps Street View: Her body appears to have something very wrong with it indeed
It’s clearly cold wherever the woman is and she has wrapped what seems to be a towel around her.
However, there appears to be something much more worrying about her than her temperature.
Her body appears to have something very wrong with it indeed.
Her legs can be seen quite clearly as she stands on the rocks.
The woman’s bikini bottoms are also visible below the edge of the towel.
Yet above this, her body appears to be almost alien.
Where the normal-sized top half of her body should be, her form leers to the left.
It’s as though her back is at a right angle to the lower half of her torso.

What’s more, her head is alarming small and looks to be where her armpit should be.
Bizarrely, her face and head look entirely normal – just out of position with the rest of her body.
He left arm is also small and seems to be holding the towel around her. Meanwhile, her right arm is positively gargantuan in comparison.
What can be wrong with the woman’s body? Or is there more to the story?
Fortunately for her, it is very likely the distorted image is the result of a technological glitch with Google Maps. The photography splicing has caused the problem due to the way the images form.
When taking the photo, the 360-degree cameras shoot multiple pictures to create a seamless image.
However, moving objects often ruin the scene as they shift when the photos are taken.
It is most likely the woman moved when the images were taken, resulting in the strange photo.
