Photographer's Note

The New Mosque in Istanbul.

Such a beautiful piece of architecture on the outside and on the inside. My girlfriend Tosca and I were here with our TE friend Deniz. I felt bad for him because he chose not to bring his camera...but then again I bet he's been here dozens and dozens of times already.

Bringing my tripod around all day long has its benefits, but it also has its downsides...its just too heavy and bulky for everyday use. On this day, I wanted a break, so I left it in the hotel room.

So we were all sitting on the floor, trying to balance our cameras on railings, or onto the floor itself.

This one came out pretty well, especially with the lonely man just standing there looking up. Not sure how he got in there because it was clearly labeled everywhere that nobody can enter this area. Perhaps he works here? not sure...but I made sure to try to capture him.

Have a great weekend everyone
Hope you like it!
