Images of Istanbul

One of the best things about staying in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul was access to roof-top restaurants where one could get spectacular views of the two important mosques in this section of the city: the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, which sit about two football fields apart with Sultanahmet Square in between. The fourth shot of the Blue Mosque was taken on a tripod with the Sony NEX 5n and the 10-18 Sony lens at 30 seconds. Photographs one, three and five were taken atop the Blue Restaurant at various focal lengths. The pigeons were taken at the New Mosque near the Golden Hind, a body of water which separates two distinct areas of this vast city.
