8-bit Home

On April Fool's Day, as a prank Google Maps offered retro technology with an 8-bit street view option as a joke. I was surprised just how vivid the computer color combinations were, how much the images mimicked a 1980s computer screen.
So, I captured some 8-bit samples of my neighborhood for kicks.
Here's my building in Chinatown.
