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.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
