Istanbul, Part III: Grab Bag

Blue Mosque, Interior IR

Here’s a couple other random shots from my trip to Istanbul.  Above is from the Blue Mosque, in infrared.  I like how this one came out.

The next two are of the Basilica Cistern, and yes, it bears more than a passing resemblance to the mines of Moria.  Plus, humid much!

And finally, a view of the Bosphorus.  As I mentioned to a friend, unlike Sarah Palin, I really COULD see Asia from my window.


Happy Shooting!
