The View Across the Ocean Is Not What You Think....... As a kid I spent a lot of time on the Maryland shore. Squinting out across the endless blue expanse, I could have sworn I saw the edge of Portugal once or twice. I was shocked recently to learn that my childhood imagination had it all wrong. (Truly, a first.)
The View Across the Ocean Is Not What You Think - a recent series of maps by cartographer Andy Woodruff offers a mind-bending reminder. His “Beyond the Sea” collection shows us who we’d really be waving to if we could see land at the other end of the watery horizon. Think that’s Europe out there, New Yorkers? It’s actually Brazil.
