It turns out that no, it’s not:

This concept stock photo uses an aerial view of a freeway interchange to illustrate concepts including connection, transportation, complexity, networking and challenge. The base photograph was taken from a helicopter over Oakland, California. The image was composited with Photoshop. I spent over two days painstakingly selecting sections of roadway, then copying pasting sizing and rotating the pieces to fit together an ever more complex puzzle. I also had to copy, paste and position each vehicle, car and truck, and then create appropriate shadows. I believe this complicated maze of on ramps, off ramps and merging roads is a great metaphor for many of today’s important issues ranging from the Internet and world wide web, to social media, to communications and connections.

It’s hard to tell exactly, since the angle and dates are different (and the compositing adds so much on top), but I think the underlying junction is where I-580 and SR 24 meet.

The “Republic of the Moon” is one of the projects that uses all this information as a source of inspiration. The project moonmeme by Liliane Lijn reveals her concept to write on the Moon from the Earth using a laser beam. The word ‘SHE” is projected onto the surface of the moon, the meaning of this word being gradually transformed as the Moon moves through its phases.

A lunar panorama by Surveyor 7, the last of the unmanned landers sent by the US before the manned moon programme (via).
Wikipedia:

On Jan. 20, while the craft was still in daylight, the TV camera clearly saw two laser beams aimed at it from the night side of the crescent Earth, one from Kitt Peak National Observatory, Tucson, Arizona, and the other at Table Mountain at Wrightwood, California.

Space Suits by San Diego Air & Space Museum Archives on Flickr:
Catalog #: 08_001663 Description: Garrett Corp Crew Systems EVA Branch Format: Glossy Photo
NASA seems to have been keen on using sport to test suits. There’s video of a game of football, comparing the soft and hard suits in a competitive trial. (via)

A composite of photographs of the London Eye, by Idris Kahn. Taken from the New York Times Magazine’s London issue, which might even prompt me to (shock) buy a paper copy.

Really interesting montages  by John Clang they make me think of a low tech version Babel Tales By Peter Funch.

There’s something about composites, especially ones that show the physical.

(re):media by Krista Wortendyke, 2009. 
“Although most of us have never experienced war, we are surrounded by its imagery. (Re): media is an exploration of the way imagery and information from movies, videogames, newspapers, and the Internet come together to form our perception of war. Having never experienced war first-hand I am forced to put my faith in mediated expressions of the thing itself. By combining the imagery I pillage from all these sources, there is a possibility that what I am creating is more real than the individual images themselves. Explosions are war’s most universal and most spectacular signifiers. We are never falling short of this imagery. I have made use of these magnetizing images to show not only how the lines between fiction and non-fiction blur, but also to show how a mediated experience can become indecipherable from a real experience.” - Krista Wortendyke.
