That’s not 2017

It’s 2017 from afar but when you zoom in it’s another year

Yeah the thought struck me that it might be early after I posted.

It's definitely my camp from this year. Some of the labels appear to be old though.

Well on my iPad or iPhone when I zoom in it’s not showing 2017 and the street grid is over laying in wrong places . It shows swish embassy (part of my village) in a completely diff place.

I’ll check on my laptop

You can clearly recognise The Man in a pavillion, infinite squares at the Temple, the colliflour as the Tree of Tenere appears to be from above.

It is 2017 for sure.

The street name overlay is offset at times and places, the image is not from directly above and a little skewed, the picture is taken around noon.

Well just checked it on my laptop. Yes it’s 2017 on my laptop, but I don’t know what freakin year it is on my i devices.

I have camped in a different configuration at the airport each year and that image is 2017 -- for sure.

I do not own a smart phone.

On my computer monitor, the image is sort-of-clearish.

But, the resolution is too low to see any specific details more than blurry basic big shapes.

I can see the shape of my vehicle in the pictures, as well as my shade structure. Sure, they're just a few pixels in a shape of a rectangle, but I can at least see that.

One of my camp members found that mobile devices show multiple years by zooming in and out.
