Photographer's Note

I've spent the last couple of months touring Europe, visiting a total of 20 new countries. Istanbul in Turkey was as far east as I travelled. I really enjoyed this vibrant city which settles the fringes of the European and Asian landmasses; a blend of eastern and western influences and home to 13 million plus residents. The building is the Hagia Sophia, a former orthodox basilican, then mosque which now serves as a cultural museum. It is over 1,400 years old. It faces the other major structural attraction in the heart of the city, the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmed Mosque). The main square was always full of life and colour. At night this fountain is lit up with alternating colours which made for some interesting long exposure shots at night.
I'm looking forward to renewed interest and future uploading on TE with my new material.
