Halloween tale of the headless cameraman
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!

"If they're not screaming at you to get out of the way, you're not close enough" - I thought this was original, but it's very close to what someone else said. Oh, well.
