Google Maps Street View is a nifty piece of online software which allows users to scour the globe at street level. However, increasingly, users are finding less expected things along the way.
Yet it isn’t the direction of her gaze that indicates her distaste at the Google Street View camera.
Instead, it is the lewd gesture she is making at the camera’s lens.
The woman is photographed lifting her middle finger – a move which is often symbolic of swearing at someone.
Another joked: “Google’s trying to erase her. RISE AGAINST THE MACHINE!! And by machine, I mean search engine.”
Unsurprisingly, this is not the first time a passerby has taken the decision to lift a finger towards the camera.
Previously, when travelling around California in the US, two men were spotted pulling similar moves.
Standing outside of a hotel on Main Street of Balboa Pier, in Newport Beach, one male seemed to have spotted the Google Car.
Whether to gain the attention of the driver or simply to get a laugh, the man decided to pull a rude move.
Raising up both of his arms, the pedestrian is using his hands to make two vulgar hand symbols.
Adding insult to injury, it seems he is joined by an onlooker who followed suit.
As the Google car speeds along the street, the second man can be seen raising one of his hands in union with his friend.
