Do you want to see the largest digital photo in the world offering a resolution of 78797 x 31565 pixels? Visit this site:

http://www.tpd.tno.nl/smartsite966.html

You can find the photo itself at

It's truly amazing ... When you zoom in, you can easily read license plates of the cars that are hardly visible when you zoom out

Strange things... Nov 26, 2004

Maybe I'm seeing things, but did anyone spot the white toped bus on the main street, close to what seems to be some kind of sports stadium (right part of the photo)? Doesn't look like an ordinary bus to me.

Très scareee

Actually, after my first message, I read on the site that the big photo is in fact a number of smaller fotos put together, which explains the mutant bus

Somewhere else on the image there is also a person walking around with only the upper part of his body (head and chest), because the rest didn't get into the adjacent photo. Either that or it's the invisible man on half charge

GMO ... sorry... GMB! (Genetically Modified Buses) Dec 2, 2004

The picture was taken in Delft, a few kilometers from my present home (I live in Den Haag).
I have to tell you all that I've seen many outlandish things in The Netherlands up to now...but this "genetically modified" bus is the epitome of weirdness!

Thanks Vladimir.
