I Spy

Does your current project need some authenticity?

Do you need to know exactly what a faraway place looks like?

Do you get story ideas from watching people go about their daily dos?

Well, you’re in luck!

Thanks to strategically placed cameras all over the world, all of the above is just a click away.

One that I find particularly delightful is the Oxford Webcam.

Tune in to see lorries, brollies, dustmen, and prams.

If you’re lucky, you might even spy my favorite taxi…

But if England is not your thing, then EarthCam is sure to please.

It lets you enjoy street scenes from Sidney, Tokyo, Bangkok, and more.

Oh, and as a super bonus feature –

Today you can check out (in real time!) exactly how all the folks in New Orleans are handling their hangovers.

PROMPT: Channel your inner snoop (or inner Big Brother, if you will). Enjoy a webcam of your choice and create a story about the watched… or the watcher.


  1. Oooo. Slightly awesome and slightly creepy.

    1. I'm with you on both counts. Great for research or a little inspiration, but at another level -- yikes!
