View from the Street

Here's a photo taken in 2010 of our front yard.  Apart from the fact that everything has grown unbelievably in twelve months, the interesting bit is that the photo shows me up a ladder leaning against the dead blue gum just left of centre.

  The other interesting thing about this photo is that it was taken by the Google street-view camera.  I was up the ladder lopping branches off the bluegum before cutting it down when I saw the camera vehicle drive past.  I thought "I'll be on Google street-view one day!"
Here's a view from in front of the house - it's a bit clearer/closer.

  Last year, Google ran into trouble for supposedly mapping people's wifi connections, and I thought they had pulled out of updating street-view in Australia, but apparently this has been resolved and I learnt today that the update has been done in the last few months. 
  And there I am.  You can see for yourself on Google maps by looking up Derna Crescent and going into street-view.  lol!
