'Bing' images: where are they from?

Postby ozchick » Sun, 27 Sep 2009 6:29 pm

Does anyone else have msn/hotmail/bing as their home-page? There are great photographs each day on there but I'm damned if I can see a link on the page that gives me any advice of where the photo was taken. Anyone know?

Je ne comprend pas! I looked at all the photos of Austria and couldn't see it there...gonna muck around with it on the weekend and see what's going on there. Wouldn't it be nice of they just put a damned caption under the photo saying e.g. this is 'The Sydney Harbour BRidge N.S.W. Australia'...would that be too much to ask? 'Spose it would......will practise on the weekend.
Thanks D!
