Looking for personal Google Maps Street View images

CNET is looking for the best images from Google's new Street View feature illustrating personal elements

When I heard about the new Street View feature Google Maps unveiled Tuesday, the first thing I thought--after I discovered that anyone in the world could see my car parked in my driveway--was that the next great craze would be people posting images from the service showing personal details from their own homes, jobs or what have you.

Sure enough, I pop over to Boing Boing today and lo and behold, there's a posting about someone whose cat is visible through the window in such detail that you can even see that it's a tabby.

And I thought, I want to do a story, or at least a photo gallery, illustrating some of the more interesting examples of this thing that some might call spying.

So, if you have found a particularly interesting image using Street View that helps make this point, please send me the link and a brief description. You can send it to Please put "Street View" in the subject line.

And within a couple days, I'll post something with the best submissions.

Thanks, and happy hunting.
