Google Sheep View is a funky hobby website founded by Ding Ren, a photographer and professor based in Washington state, and Mike Karabinos, a archival theorist and musician in Amsterdam.

tumblr_o88ntro2xy1uveg1do1_1280The site relies on submissions from Google map users around the globe. Participants are encouraged to find images of sheep captured using Google’s Street View, a feature found inside Google Maps.
