Inside Hagia Sophia, Istanbul

With this interior photo of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey I tried to capture the scale of this gigantic structure. But even with my wide-angle lens, you're only seeing a small corner of this remarkable building. The Hagia Sophia is an interesting mix of Christian and Muslim art and architecture since it was first a Byzantine church, then an Ottoman mosque, and now a museum, and has been rebuilt multiple times. When I was there, much of the interior was being restored.

Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque - Istanbul

This is the "Blue Mosque" in Istanbul, Turkey, which is really called the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. It doesn't look blue at all in this photo, but it has blue tiles adorning the inside. It's right next to the Hagia Sophia which doesn't look at impressive from the outside.

A nun walking to morning prayer in a monastery in Turkey. This beautiful sunrise was a parting gift the last morning of our 4-day stay at this monastery.

We passed by this man in a market in Turkey. He looks like someone who has experienced a lot in his lifetime.

Soccer at Sunset

Two boys fighting for the soccer ball in a remote village of Turkey. There was a third kid who served as goalie for this small skirmish. It doesn't take much to have a good time.
