Caption

Last year Germany was transformed to "Blurmany". A lot of buildings were blurred in Google's Street View on request of the people living in those houses.
I myself like to visit my own and other cities by panoramas (even if they are of such a low quality like those of Google Street View).
So of course I don't like these blurification of several parts of German streets as it sets very narrow limits for my view.
To show my protest against this blurification, I made my participation of this WWP also "a little bit" blurry in some parts.

You can see the original scene by Google Street View (with only one blurred house) here.
