People ask to take a photo with you you all over Asia. They’re not asking for help taking a photo of them. They want you in it! To help you avoid the surprise of this happening, I’ll share some details of the experience.
Feel like a celebrity in Asia!
If someone holds out their camera and asks if you can take a picture, and motions with their finger on the camera trigger, you’d probably assume they want you to take a photo of them. That was not the case. People were constantly asking to take a photo with me. WITH me. I feel like a celebrity!
They wanted to have a photo of the two of us in a photo, like you would if you saw a celebrity. This happened more than a dozen times in my day trip to Macau.
And when it’s a group, they often want a group shot as well as individual shots with me. Bizarre!
I saw this for the first time last year in Taiwan, but it happened much more during my day in Macau.
I’m a celebrity rockstar!
Here’s a few of them that ended up on my camera as well:
This guy below asked me to be in a photo with him – on my camera. Then he asked for this pose – we look like we just signed a treaty
Macau’s Ruins of St Paul. People kept coming up to me and asking to take a picture with me. This group of 7 girls showed me their camera, wanting me to be in a group photo. Then a two-shot. Then another girl joined, but also wanted an individual shot with me. This went on for about 20 photos!
For more on a Macau day trip, I’ve put together a 29 photo tour for you.
