Halloween tale of the headless cameraman
Nov 1, 2012

Trick or treat!  Here's a scary tale that happens to be true, and I shot a photo that proves it.

You may have heard about the driverless Google camera car and the trouble it's caused in a few areas.  Well, it LIVES AMONGST US!   MUUUUwahahahahahaha!

While getting some atmosphere shots at the SF Giants World Series victory parade on Halloween - and how cool is it that the Giants team colors are the same as the traditional Halloween colors, orange and black? - one of the Google spooky cars drove by.  Or more truthfully, crawled by, stuck in the traffic in front of San Francisco city hall, where the parade had ended.

I recognized that it was a Google car by the camera on the top as the car approached, but I didn't notice that there was no one in it until it passed me.  Here's a shot from the back.  No driver, no passenger.  Really creepy.  BOO!
