Photographer's Note

Visiting Istanbul is impossible to miss this place !!!

The Blue Mosque .....an unique monument in my favorite color...the blue

It was founded by Sultan Ahmet I. He ordered Architect Mehmed AgaBlue Mosque from air to begin construction in 1609 and the whole complex was completed in 1616. The location of the mosque is just opposite of the splendid Church of Hagia Sophia as it is trying to compete with it. That is actually true because Architect Mehmed wanted to construct a bigger dome then Hagia Sophia's but he could not succeed. Instead, he made the mosque splendid by the perfect proportion of domes and semidomes as well as the splendid minarets.....6 minarets....the unique with 6 :)

I think this last TE meeting in Istanbul was the ONE for me!means I enjoyed so much,maybe to much because I already miss Turkey,and all our friends from there
