The Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia Mosque and sailing the Bosphorus Strait

Three Kittens

Today was action-packed, visiting some of the most famous sites in Istanbul. Not mentioned above were the Antiquities Museum which has an incredible collection of sculpture and architectural elements dating from around the 1st century A.D. Then we went to dinner on a 34 meter twin-masted sailing yacht through the Bosphorus Strait. This was simply the highlight of an amazing day, dining on a beautiful evening on the water separating Europe from Asia. Magnificent!

I photograph the landscape and other subjects that interest me, and travel is an important part of my work. Through my travel photography workshops, I take people to some great locations for photography. I teach full-time at Washtenaw Community College and in the summer I also conduct workshops at the Maine Media Workshops.

    Interesting shadow on the headless man it seems he has a profile in the shadow!

    Hi Terry,
    Terrific photos! You have truly captured Turkey! I hope that Turkey also ‘captured’ you. Welcome home. I hope your travels were safe and happy. If you happen to have had any success in photographing Sumer’s family home on the Bosphorus, I would greatly appreciate a copy.
    Best regards,
    Mickey Katz-Pek

    PS – hope to see you at the Mesut Ilgim lecture at Rackham on Nov. 7 at 2:00 p.m.! Invitations out soon.
