The Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Mosque)

Day 2 in Istanbul was a whirlwind. We saw the blue mosque first.
It's actually in use as a mosque so you have time time your visit right and you get to wear a headscarf. I really wish I could show you the pictures of me and my friends in scarves. We looked totally awesome.

Another dome. (Told you it was an obsession.)

Stained glass. I didn't know this was a feature of mosques too. Maybe it's the western influence?

Three domes in one shot!

Those tourists totally ruined my shot.

Doors.

I loved the minarets. I have about a half dozen versions of this shot because I just kept thinking, 'oh that's so great, I should get a picture...'
