It's a pity you can't see Pete in the passenger seat next to you.
The photo must've been taken before you bought him the booster seat.

Wow, I'm glad this has been updated...

My street was photographed last summer on a Monday. Last summer as the neighbour's house was up for sale, and a Monday as the bins are out!

They've not fuzzed out some reg plates on the neighbour's cars though...

There were no real visible clues for my house other than plants in flower etc so I took a 'virtual' trip to the local newsagent and zoomed in on the newspaper headline billboards from two papers and google'd the headlines to tie it down to the exact date

I've just taken a virtual stroll round Coniston without leaving my desk...

What a brilliant tool for checking out new locations. Grin

Yes Karl Taylor suggest this in his Travel and Landscape Photography DVD I'm currently reviewing. It's a great idea. He showed an example in Paris of scouting around the Eiffel tower before he went. He found the only street view where he could get the buildings on both side and a clear view of the tower in the middle. He then marks the location on a map so he knows where to head when he arrives.

They've even covered some of the smallest Scottish islands, like Colonsay, which only really has the one road round it... yet they've not covered the Isle of Man yet.

I'd have loved the job of driving up the west coast of Scotland... might actually have enjoyed a job for a change!

As well as scouting new locations, I could spend all day revisiting some of my favourite places I haven't been to in ages... It's brilliant!

I had a look at my parents house which is up for sale.
My mother is standing at the back door watching what is going on .................. spooky since she died just over a year ago

Well I remember standing taking photos in Santiago de Compostela when a man on a Google Tricycle came cycling by.

Guess what I just found? I've posted a screen grab here

yours truly (centre with blue jacket/yellow lining) with Canon 5D taking photographs.

Wilmas Dad is sitting in his front garden and he died almost 3 years ago now !!!!! mind you the image has been on google earth for a year or so now so a relativly old image.

Pretty impressive. They must have done our area before last June as Robbie's previous car is outside.
