That is actually what I'm after. I know the 'can' I take your picture, but i am struggling with 'would you like me to take'. I'm thinking it should be my taking your picture, would you like. I see deeminor has used the hourist tense for this which I wouldn't have thought of.

I'd be interested ot see the replies to this as it's not something that I'd ever do. In Egypt yes, but in Turkey imho it would absolutely offend. Wondering if anyone knows different!

Paying for photos

I agree. No-one expects to be paid for their photo in Turkey except maybe the guy giving camel rides? If you want to make people who pose for you happy get them to write down an address and then send them a copy of the photo when you get home.

I know somewhere they expect to be paid, but have forgotten where. Don´t want to offend either way!! Good idea about sending the photo to them, thanks.
