Leonard Cohen on Google Street View

As a huge fan of Google Street View, I find this amazing 8)

That is great! It even shows Leonard's old Nissan Pathfinder.

I actually find this to be a bit unsettling and sad. It is like looking through a portal to the past, and witnessing a happy moment in time that we know no longer exists. It is almost like seeing a ghost.

Lisa, I feel somewhat the same way!

And hello to you Roman - so nice to see you're still around 8)

It's even sadder now that it seems to be gone.

Thank you! There's something very consoling about that.

Thanks for this, good to see LC able to relax outside and chat with a friend towards the end of his life.
I find nothing unsettling about this.
We all have photos of loved ones who have died. (I have no time for euphemisms such as "passed" , "passed on" , etc. We live - we die.)
Do we dump these photos after their death?
Of course not. We treasure them all the more, because that's all we have left.
