  1. Haha, nice images. It amazes me that people camp out just to get their hands on tech products. It seems to happen with anything Apple releases.

  2. I like number 20 caption, “Chili peppers laid out to dry, Mandalay, December 23, 2007”. It must have been a hot day or this caption is left over from the “Myanmar-Burma, The Golden Land” caption!!! Since I couldn’t find the email address for the webmaster, I figured the comments were good enough to get this fixed.

    • Yes you are right, I was a misstake from us. Thank you for pointing it out. We have corrected the caption.
      We need more people like yourself to help us proof read.
      Thank you.
      Triggerpit Webmaster.
