MSN Virtual Earth... excuse me... Windows Live! Local... has added a feature called "birds eye view" to their mapping software. They just so happened to have captured my house in late summer after I moved in. I know this because that playscape in the back yard was put there by me in July. Cool feature... Check it out by clicking here.
Also, note that you can rotate the view by clicking on the N/S/E/W buttons in the upper left so that you can see my backyard too :)
