Perhaps the largest image in the history of the interwebs: a panoramic view of London.

There are other 360 degree panoramas of other major cities and landmarks on that site.

I'm sure the photographer took thousands of pictures and blended them in together. Hence, the times being off. Considering that the panorama itself is 80 gigapixels, it takes a whole lot of processing power just to blend a few of those frames together.

Yeah, it's actually a blended picture. In some places, you can see the same people standing next to themselves.
