Default Incredible Coincidence

I am still shivering about the incredible coiincidence described by tranh nguyen when he and stevep photographed the SAME woman in the same remote part of Vietnam!!! (I don't know how to link to the photos or I would, but please check it out). I was just reflecting on how positive it has been for me to be a member of this site, and then I came upon this! The world is so much smaller than we can even imagine... Thank you to tranh for sharing this with us, and thank you to all of you for being such good local, national, and international friends!
Cheers,
Sarah

We're a club, you know...
the TCG club is probably the most elitist in the world. :D ... so elitist and secret we've never met. He's our unique inspiration.

Well this one's maybe not as incredible. If there's a photogenic guy hanging out on the street in Hong Kong all the time, clearly he's going to get a lot of exposure. However it's funny that so several people saw him. There's even a theme.

I am always surprised at the number of photos that are posted on TE of subjects who I have shot (and may or many not have posted). Other than the tooth challenged guy, there is a nun at Angkor who is on this site probably a dozen times and there are a number of monks who make multiple appearances, be they from Thailand, Laos, Cambodia or Myanmar. I think that certain subects are naturally photogenic and they also happen to be in spots where folks with cameras go. Luang Prabang, Sapa, Angkor, big temples in Thailand, Schwedagon in Yangon, etc. The photogenics ones who are in those areas get there photos taken a lot.

Happy holidays.
