Photographer's Note

Kiosk. They are quite common in the cities worldwide and i have never reflected over it until now when I read about them at wikipedia and found this:

"Kiosk is a small, separated garden pavilion open on some or all sides. Kiosks were common in Persia, India, Pakistan, and in the Ottoman Empire from the 13th century onward.In the Western hemisphere and in English-speaking countries, a kiosk is also a booth with an open window on one side. Some vendors operate from kiosks selling small, inexpensive consumables such as newspapers, magazines, lighters, street maps, cigarettes, and confections."

That was news for me because i thought "Kiosk" was a relatively new phenomenomen.
