Drones are fast becoming more popular as a way to take photos and videos of properties, but it is important to look at the photos before posting them publicly on a billboard. One Australian woman got more than she bargained for when her topless photo went public for the world to see.
Mandy Lingard was sunbathing in her backyard in the privacy of her fenced in property. While she was catching some rays, a real estate photographer used a drone to photograph a nearby property. In the periphery of the photos, a clear shot of Lingard wearing nothing more than a string bikini bottom.
After taking photos of the million dollar home, the listing agent posted the real estate photo on a Melbourne billboard, making Lingard, a grandmother and mother to three children, an unintended star. After realizing their error, the billboard was quickly removed. However, the damage had already been done. The image had also been sent out to locals in a real estate magazine and posted on the internet. Lucky for her, she was lying face down, so only her backside made it big in Melbourne.
“A couple of weeks later I walked out my door and thought ‘oh my god, that’s what it was doing’: taking photos. You could see [that] it’s our backyard and, quite clearly, it was me. It’s in the real estate magazine, it’s on the Internet and on the board and I’m really embarrassed.”
“I heard a noise and then I saw this odd thing flying around and thought it was a kid’s toy. It hovered around and luckily, I was face down at the time. My son has noticed it and he’s embarrassed that his mum is there.”
