Google Street View funny photo site


Posted by Brent Hathaway | Posted in General | Posted on 02-06-2010

I happened to find a pretty addictive site.  By now, a lot of people are familiar with the Google car that has a camera on a tripod, attached to the roof of the car.   The site contains photos of oddities and random things, but there is a lot to look at.  I finally had to pull myself away from  it, in fact.

As the Google Street View car passes by, it is constantly taking pictures (and until recently, collecting wireless information).¬† So… it is pretty obvious when you see this vehicle that you know what is going on.¬† It’s been through the city¬†twice here.¬†¬†It appears that even people in Portugal know what the vehicle is.¬† Keep on the lookout for the Google Street View bike – which I hadn’t known about before.

There are a ton of photos in this site’s collection.¬† There are photos of¬† people waving, people flipping off the camera, but the funniest ones are when people don’t notice the vehicle.¬† There are multiple photos of people caught urinating in bushes or alleys, photos of guys checking out women, a drug deal, a fight, and people pulled over by the police. There also is one of a very pregnant women smoking, and (believe it!) a mother holding her baby daughter above a storm sewer to go to the bathroom.¬† This collection is from all over the world, so that in itself is pretty interesting.¬†¬† People can submit their own findings on Google Street View also.

Cool stuff.
