Skirts up!… in Rotterdam

In The Netherlands, using bikes for everything is customary... even if you are wearing skirt. But, of course, now, with Street View, one should be extra-careful... or you risk showing your in&outs to the whole (Google) earth, and not only to your neighbourghs.

Google Street View has big bugs... in Netherlands

Did you think that Google was bug-free? Well, it is not. Here you can see one, and very big. This thing got on top of Google Car's camera and went with out all the way down through Groningen. How often do they clean these lenses?

It is mandatory to own a Ferrari… in Rome

It is mandatory to own one Ferrari in Rome... at least. Or that is what it looks like looking at this concentration in random street of the city. Maybe they give them for free?

UFO caught by Street View... in Sidney

The Street View cam sees everything, and in this case, it saw a strange presence...
Is this the hunted hunter?
Is somebody watching us at all times? apart from Google, I mean..
Is there anything out there?

Take me a picture with the lion... in Madrid


Where there are tourists, there are fools.

Here, the typical picture below the lions in front of the Deputy Congress in Madrid. Couldn't they be a bit more original? If at least they had put the head into the lion's mouth...

Monument in Spain.. and it is not the bullring!

We know that Google has a program to blur faces in Street View, but butts also? Whay if such program is a hoax and there is an army of blurers at Google? In that case, the one who treted this picture is not one of those guys who look at a woman's eyes...

Screenshot
If you zoom out and walk ahead a bit you can see some more angles of this monument. I mean the bullring of course...
