Gerhard on Google Street View
A couple of months ago, as I was stepping out of the house to get the mail, I saw a Google Street View car drive down our street. Little did I know that I would feature quite prominently in the photos of our house. Really, what are the odds?
The photos of our neighborhood are now up on Google Maps. Here are some screen captures.
In the first photo, I’m just a small blob.
I’m a little bigger in the second photo.
Now you can spot me quite easily.
This might be my proverbial 15 minutes of fame. It may even last a year or two—or however long it’ll take Google to come by again. It might be a while though; our street clearly doesn’t offer this level of excitement.
While we’re at it, let’s take a look at the desert bed along the fence.
Looking good from across the street!
