Instant Tourist Snapshots

In contrast to the almost medieval instant photo process I featured from India, here is a modern update from Turkey. Reader Erik Fitzpatrick writes:

My wife and I were in Turkey recently and while we were in the plaza in front of the Aya Sofya (Hagia Sofia) in Istanbul, I noticed this photo vendor. But instead of the old-fashioned kid-with-a-polaroid, this guy had a digital camera and a battery-powered photo printer!
