Default 1 Year Anniversary Of This Website

It was 1 year ago today that I started taking pictures for my soon-to-be neighbours and putting them up on a webpage for them to view.

Little did I know how much this website would have changed in that period of time. I now have 10000 pictures covering over 300 house lots.

I may not get paid to do this, but I sure do enjoy meeting all the people and getting to know who my neighbours are.

I hope you get value from this service, and as always, I welcome suggestions!

Hey Greg,

Personally I think this is a good idea. I was able to send pics of the house to out of town friends and family.

This was they get to see the house when they can't make a personal visit.

Regards, Dolley

Greg, congratulations for the good work - keep it up!

I actually have a question of the pictures, did anyone ever contact you with privacy concerns? Not that I would be concerned, the reason I am asking is that I had a neighbour who once asked me to put my webcam down, since it was showing part of her house.

Of course the situation is different here, because the houses still belong to the builder while they are being built. And the builder should be happy that you provide this as a free service. As a matter of fact, they should consider paying you.

Once people move in, I'm done taking pictures.. unless they ask me to take a picture of them in front of their house.. which I have done a few times.

All pictures are taken from a public street of things in plain sight with a clear definition of what they are used for.

The pictures will stay here online for probably a year.

It's good that you have a policy on this already. As I said, I wasn't really concerned, but it was more or less out of interest.

I admire the amount of work you put into this site, and I hope it pays off for you.

It pays off in terms of assisting people. It sure beats the soul sucking that happens in my day job :)
