Just so as you know, it was me August 10, 2008

I was out and about in Judges Bay today and a car not unlike the one above, I think that it was a VW Polo, drove past.  It was a Google Streets survey car.  So when the Auckland Google Streets images are released and you happen to be using the tool on the Judges Bay section, it was me standing by a red car in Judges Bay Road with my back to Dove-Myer Robinson Park and my face all fuzzed out for privacy!

I commented on Allanah’s blog last week that I am looking forward to creating virtual ‘Amazing Journeys‘ with this tool when the Auckland streets are finally released, now I will be in one of them.  I suspect that the car was out surveying today because of the fine weather and the quiet streets.  So if you happen to see a car with an odd looking aerial sticking out of the top of it over the coming weeks and months it will most likely be a Goolgle Streets survey car.  It is not hard to miss it has Google Streets on the side as an additional clue!
