My pal Russell said he’d been having a laugh at Yours Truly on Google Streetview. I remember the day the wee google camera car came up our street. It was early in the morning and the blinds were down, it was a Tuesday so I’d just put the bins out. I had been googled on my doorstep but am only visible from certain angles on the site.
Then I remembered that I’d seen the same car a couple of days later on my day off. I had just turned the corner from Clyde St into Colquhoun St in Helensburgh. I wondered….surely not….if the camera…….(don’t be ridiculous)…….had captured me walking far too close to the wall with a Home Hardware bag in my hand.
Sure enough a quick check at the site found that streetview had caught the moment.
Johnny Rotten once famously said that a photo was “a second of your life ruined for life”
I’ve got several hours worth to back up that theory and this is unmistakably (the pre-weightloss) me.
