    Not mine. Not even close. But there is of a lot of people I know. I'm undecided as to if it's an invasion of privacy or not, but I am quite glad that there isn't any of my place.

    They have pictures of mine. Most big cites are like that.

    Depends on what you consider an invasion of privacy.

    You need to trim the lawn a little better PR.

    There is one of my house, it was taken approx. 3 years ago. I check from time to time to see if they have taken another one so that it shows the improvements I have made on my property since then. :D

    There was one of mine. I requested that it be removed, and now it is gone.

    Oh REALLY! Wow... I had no idea they'd do that. Did they just black it out or what?

    The apartment I used to live in in Reno had "street view" clear through the parking lot, and you can see my truck sitting in my parking space, so I think all these views have to be around three years old.

    I think since you can actually drive past any of these places, it really isn't an invasion of privacy. Some people see it that way though.

    the google image truck, then there is one that has a dome on the top, that is the one I have seen.
    Kind of ironic that I cannot find an image of that truck too

    Occasionally when I visit Houston I'll take a pic of the house and inspect the lawn....I wonder why? I suppose we're just curious to find if a Cock Fighting Ring has been constructed in the backyard........

    I have that thing on the top of my van so I can lay down on my back and sleep inside it without injury.
