Once, about six years ago, I was captured on an image in Google Street View. This was a wonderful moment, and I was tremendously excited by it, and today I'm going to tell you about it.

Here's what happened: I was driving along in the Atlanta area in my 2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon, which was painted a color called "Pewter Metallic." I was transitioning from Interstate Highway 285 -- the highway that encircles Atlanta -- to Interstate Highway 85 north. About this time, I encountered the Google Street View car, which I believe was a Subaru Impreza.

Now, I understand that the Google Street View car isn't always doing its street-viewing, so I thought there was a chance the cameras were off. But I decided to drive beside it on the ramp anyway, for a few extra seconds than I normally would have, just in case. Periodically, I checked that ramp over the next few months, and eventually it happened, in the pictures you see above: I was captured on Google Street View!

I saved screenshots and got very excited, thrilled that I'd be preserved for all of eternity. Unfortunately, the configuration of this ramp has changed, and Street View no longer allows you to look back at the "old" ramp. So when you use Street View in this area, you see only the latest image and you can't look at older ones. In other words, I am not preserved for all of eternity. But now I am, thanks to this post.
