Blade runner, inner zoom

This 2.5 gigapixel photo of Delft reminded me of the scene in Blade Runner, where Deckard analyzes fine grained details of a photo he found at a crime scene. The photo has infinite depth and Deckard is able to "center, enhance" again and again and again. The Delft photo has unbelievable zoom as well. Almost infinite.
Of course for real infinite zoom, you still have to rely on the imagination, the only place where infinity exists.
