Google Maps / Streetview #1

My house is clearly visable on Google Streetview. I just put in my postcode and up came a fabulous 360 degree rendering of my entire world. The already peeling paint on my new railings, individual pebbles in my front garden, the leaves (summer!) on my plants, the nice wooden blinds at my windows (one drawn down), the exact pattern of the coloured glass in my front door, its two locks,  and my black smart car, perfectly aligned in the driveway where I always leave it.

Its not exactly a secret, my house, where I live. It was built in 1879. You could find records of it via the land registry – you can look me up in the printed version of the electoral roll. You could get on the tube and come and stand outside. Far easier to just invite yourself to dinner.

Why do I feel Streetview is too much information??  I “clicked here to report a problem”. I don’t want pictures of my house on Streetview.
