Apperently son-spots are affecting his phone (snicker) because he has not emailed the pic yet. So the image you see is from google's website.
To learn more about the streetview car and technology follow this link, also here is a good wikipedia article on google.
Let me know in the comments if you have ever been followed or photographed by the street view car.
Finally got the image from the boy. It is a little grainy but you get the idea.
