The Street View facility in Google Earth’s photographic representation of the world lets you see what streets – and the houses and people in them – looked like when its car-mounted camera passed by. But something is missing.
Google Street View didn’t see me
With its panoramic eye,
For I had gone out shopping
When its camera drove by.
If they’d told me they were coming
I’d have looked out for their car;
I would have stood outside my house,
And I’d have been a star. . .
But no; I’m not on Street View.
It seems celebrity
Has overlooked me yet again –
You can’t zoom in on me.
