    Agree with this one.
    I've never thought of visiting those nations till I got my cam, get the hang of shooting, and looking at Tungtong's works.
    Now I am so tempted to go NK with my cam.

    Let's conclude that Cam, photography and clubsnap are bad influence.

    Use your common sense. Draw your own conclusion.

    Marivan is inside Iran and is at least 20 km away by road from nearest Iraq/Iran border.



    This is how desolate the road looks like. (Photo credit: www.trekearth.com)

    With this shot, I'd be intrigued if I can get a better view off road during sunset/sunrise.

    So those long term resident who refuse to take up citizenship should travel safe. Else we may see the native and adopted countries play tai-chi with each other.

    haiz... don't know how to explain to you.
    Even as a PR, that person is still a citizen of his native country, hence, if sh*t happens, it's his native country's responsibility to save him. Not the country he is PR of.

    Do you even know how to get to DPRK (your NK)? the paperwork involved? your restrictions once you get in there? And the risks involved?

    What about PR? Who is responsible to extract them - native or adopted country?
    Yes. Many of our photographers carrying expensive cameras got napped.

    Their families had to pay the Leica-loving kidnappers M9s and Summarit-M lenses as ramsons.

    I know what you meant lah. I am just saying what if the native country very meow and says the PR already spent half his life overseas. Would it come to a point whereby the native country pushes the responsibility to the adopted country. It can happen, isn't it?
