This is cool because of the location.

It's a StreetView image and I don't think Google provides direct links to a specific location on StreetView. Maybe they do But I can't figure it out. So, the best I can provide is this link.

Google Maps StreetView Link

Click the link, then click on the StreetView image at the bottom-left (the image on the left with the little white circular arrow). When that comes up, pan the image to the left and you will see the kids shooting pellet guns. Click your position to move towards the kids for a better look.

What makes it cool is the location. They are shooting birds flying over the ancient wall of Nicaea, Asia Minor (present-day Iznik, Turkey). In the Roman period, this was known as Nikaia, in the province (or administrative area) of Bithynia et Pontus. The place is known for the First and Second Councils of Nicaea, the Siege of Nicaea during the First Crusade in 1097, among other things.

Imagine having such a place in your backyard. Those walls are at least as old as the 3rd century AD.
