Google Street View finds naked woman on porch

Updated: November 10, 2011 9:35AM



Talk about your Miami Vice: A Florida woman who was nude on her porch was captured by Google’s Street View camera as it rolled past her house.

The tech giant uses roving camera cars to provide real-life ‘street view’ angles for their maps application.

The woman can be seen standing outside of a Miami home holding a jug.

“It used to be you could contemplatively hold a water jug naked outside of your Liberty City house without fear that your photo would end up on the Internet,” the Miami NewTimes commented. “Used to be.”

Of course, as the image became an Internet sensation, Google blurred the woman’s image — both her face and her body.

The company told Forbes magazine it typically uses “face blurring technology” to protect identities.
