Android garden

These statues, in front of Building 44 on the Google campus, commemorate each Android release from Cupcake onwards.

 

Taking a panorama this close-up makes it look like the sculptures are all in a straight line and the building is curved. In fact, it's the other way around: the front of the building is straight, and the statues are in a roughly 90° arc around the viewing point on this path.

 

Alas, this picture was out of date even before I left Mountain View: a few days later I watched them bring the jellybeans out of the building and into a giant jellybean pot.

 

Unsurprisingly, Google Street View has a much better panorama of the statuary.
