Default Three cameras per capita !

Allow me to share with you dear folks, one of my brilliant thoughts about TE… (If I may, that is ?)…
It was always puzzling me why Turkey (after India) – is the most popular, constantly present on TE – country?
India… The answer is simple…
If only one per one thousand people in there have a camera – the hailstones and high water comes onto the pages of TE quite naturally! :-)))))
But Turkey…? How to explain Turkey?
Oh, well.. I’m glad that you just asked me this question…
Because just this very day, of the lovely Saturday of March 2008 – your curiosity may be fulfilled…

The answer is very simple…
There are , in Turkey – three photographers per one child!

<a href=http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo862061.htm>It’s true !!!!<a>

What a country…???
Now I realize what a huge mistake I’ve made with this silly decision of mine to emigrate to Canada !!!
………………………
Lovely photo… Lovely scene… Lovely place…

………………………………

BTW: Can you imagine folks the TE without India & Turkey in it ????



Have a great one

Hi George!!!
you are right, there are so many photographers in Turkey! Three for one child!

But you make me think : if India "only one per one thousand people in there have a camera" - why Chineses are not so many as Turkey in TE?? We had a great one , Mingfang, for example , and she left us!

Ciao from Italy

No I can't, TE would be B&W ...
the higher life-form,
the less colorful and messy as if life is a contradiction on it's own ?

LOL, thanks for that George!

I'm surprised England isn't up there, afterall we probably have a few hundred (CCTV) cameras per person ;)

It's priceless, someone vandalises a camera, so what do they do? Replace it, and then put up more cameras to watch the vandalised one.

1984, 2008, same same, but well... same ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!

George,
Is it true that they have 8 camera's per person in Canada?
In that case . . . stay!

But Yeah . . . remigrate to Turkey :)
Land of the Pizza, Croissant, and Sinterklaas!
Live in Asia, work in Europe!

India, the princess of the world,
many worlds in one!

What's it gonna be?
