Sultanahmet Camil (or the Blue Mosque)
One of the most famous monuments on the Istanbul skyline is the Blue Mosque. From the outside it has barely a straight line, it is all domes and turrets. Famously, it also have 6 minarets, the same as the mosque at Mecca.
Suitably attired, we went for a look see on our second morning in Istanbul. The interior is dominated by a huge dome covered in blue tiles (over 20,000 of them) which is how the mosque gets its name. The inside is very peaceful and feels very luxurious. However, as is the case with most (all?) mosques the inside is not as striking as the exterior.
However, it is still a magnificent building.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
