Süleymaniye'nin sahane bir fotografi. Esim ve ikinci torununla beraber 18 Eylül'de ayni noktada durup camininin buna benzer bir resmini çekmistim. Bu kadar temiz, bulutsuz bir hava yoktu.
Güzel bir hafta sonu dilerim,

bella simmetria e piacevole prospettiva accentuata dall'effetto distorsione lente.
