Streetview Adelaide: The Museum Of Dirt

Tuesday 7 October 2008

I haven’t been doing any work, I’ve just been playing with Google’s street view of Australia. I’ve been mostly looking at Adelaide, my old home town.
Thanks Google, for picking Hard Rubbish Day to send your little car around the neighbourhood I grew up in. You make it look like I spent my childhood in a tip.

Note also in the above photos two other Adelaide icons, the brush fence and the stobie pole. I’ve tweaked the photos a little bit because Google went through town on a bright sunny day, and the intermittent tree cover made a lot of the pictures overexposed.
  1. Awesome beyond the powers of language to express.

    It wasn't hard rubbish day in my street when they came past, but there is still a pile of crap in the front yard regardless.

  2. aw poor scamp grew up in a tip.
