Some phones are stupid and, instead of actually rotating the image whenever the gyro tells them the phone isn't right-side up, just attach a note to the file that the file should be rotated when it is displayed. The software on phones often reads these notes, but desktops often don't.

Meta metadata.

PA 183 on I-78...if you click on it, Flickr calls this "A mysterious place with no name":

Based on your comment I checked the metadata on the Flickr entry. Lo and behold, there is an "Orientation - Rotate 180" entry in the EXIF.

Illinois 184.  A tiny highway I have seen once in my life, and that was 11 years ago.

There's no US 188, so we'll go with Alabama 188 in Alabama Port, Alabama:

Side bar comment: It's kind of odd seeing a center-aligned EXIT tab on top of a main BGS panel with Clearview lettering.  Obviously, the main panel was a more recent replacement.
