Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

My favorite night time photo is of the Blue Mosque, Istanbul. I took it from the terrace of  the hotel my husband and I were staying in back in 2006. This famous landmark looks like it’s made of gold at night. Notice the seagulls flying around it.DSCN2776

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Circles and Curves

The Blue Mosque may be the most well known landmark in Istanbul, but right opposite it, lies the Hagia Sophia, a structure constructed as a Greek orthodox church in the year 537. Later it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral and in 1453 it became a mosque under the Ottoman Turks. Finally it was converted to a museum in 1935.

You can see plenty of circles and curves in its exterior and interior structure.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

While taking a night shot of the Blue Mosque from my hotel room terrace in Istanbul, I got something extra in the form of seagulls flying over this famous landmark. Later I read that seagulls are attracted to illuminated objects to make snacks out of the large number of moths that congregate over the bright lights.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

The Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, home to 6 sultans of the Ottoman Empire from 1856 to 1924 and the first president of the Turkish Republic in his last days in 1938 has long been abandoned as a residence and is now a museum open to tourists. My husband and I visited this palace back in 2006.

Dolmabahçe has the largest collection of Bohemian and Baccarat crystal chandeliers in the world and used 35 tonnes of gold (equal to nearly 1.5 billion dollars) in its construction of which 14 tonnes were used to gild the ceilings.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White

The Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul, Turkey was home to Sultans of the Ottoman Empire and was built between the years 1843 and 1856. The baroque style palace exterior is made from white sandstone. Here is a view of the palace taken while my husband and I were on a Bosphorus cruise back in 2006.

DSCN2661_1It is the largest palace in Turkey and the land the palace has been built on was reclaimed from the Bosphorus. Here are more shots taken on a tour of the palace.

DSCN2696Here is a view of the gate to the Bosphorus:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

I took this selfie with my camera when we were staying at a boutique hotel overlooking the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. Note the seagulls flying over the Blue Mosque illuminated by its light.

Friday Fictioneers: The First Meeting

copyright-ted-strutzHe had come on a business trip to Istanbul. He hated going on sightseeing excursions alone, but he had a whole day off and decided to take a dinner cruise.

The food was mediocre, but at least the view was breathtaking. He was admiring the Bosphorus when someone in the boat caught his eye. She was alone like him and was dressed simply with little make-up. But her smile was the most captivating he had ever seen. He never looked at the Bosphorus again that night.

They were married shortly after and lived together happily for the rest of their lives.
