You gotta check this out and read the down to at least the 7th comment. This has to be one of the most unlikely meetups imagineable. Makes one boggle at the interconnectedness we share via technology. Quoted from the Flickr message board,

“Wait. Let me get this straight.

A guy from Scotland goes 5490 miles to Tokyo and takes a picture of a girl taking a picture. She turns out to be from England, 413 miles away from him.

Impressive, but not all that weird.


He posts the picture he took on a Website (in Canada, irrelevantly) and within 6 weeks the girl in the photo finds it?

That is truly amazing. I am deeply impressed. Any one care to calculate the odds?”
