Hagia Sofia


It's big.
Also, it's surrounded by scruffy trees, so I found that the best pictures came when I tried to take pictures of it from rooftop restaurants.


It couldn't have been more than 40 degrees in the mosque(?)/church(?)/other(?). (I'm still confused about what it is now.) Anyway, the interior was beautiful. It was an interesting mix, with a mihrab on one wall and a madonna with child on another.


Giant chandelier! (Really, I was very impressed by that for some reason.)


Also inexplicable is my deep and abiding love of photographing ceiling domes. I must have dome pictures from a dozen countries by now.
