Flickr coincidence & The Intimate Planet
"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" and then "he posts the picture he took on a Website (in Canada, irrelevantly) and within 6 weeks the girl in the photo finds it". Small world...(via kottke.org)
