(Scroll down for audio) A woman was left red faced after she was seen in real estate advertisements sunbathing on her own property.
The real estate agent of Australia, snapped the woman sunbathing topless in her backyard, and then posted the photos on a billboard.
Mandy Lingard, 50, was stunned to see the photos of herself laying face down in just a thong splashed on advertisements for a property in her neighborhood.
The mother of three children, said that she remembered hearing the buzzing sound of the drone that took the photo over her house south-east of Melbourne several weeks ago.
However, she did not realize that the drone was taking photos of her while being nude.
The photos were not only posted in the streets, they were also placed in a real estate magazine and on the Internet. “I am very embarrassed. My son has noticed the photos and he was embarrassed as well,” Lingard said.
Steve Walsh, owner of the Eview real estate agency, said that he had not noticed that Lingard was in the shot. He removed the posters after he was made aware of the situation.
He defended the use of drone photos to promote the properties he is selling, saying that Google does it and people use it every day.
