looking up



is hosted by tnchick

This week's theme is a free choice....since I was in  Istanbul last week my choice is a view of the Blue Mosque, a fascinating place and hard to photograph to do it justice. Pls click to enlarge for an overview of the decorations!

  10. That is STUNNING! I am lost for words and I haven't even started looking for an entry for this week. Sometimes a free choice is more difficult than a restrictive one, but you have a winner!
