Pocket-sized art with more uses than you can wave a Bic at. Birthdays, thanks yous, Valentines or even Wednesdays, there’s always an occasion for a stunning card. From promotional weapon to distant friend-contactor, our cards are more versatile than Optimus Prime.
Cards are designed to suit the most common image ratio of 3:2, but any image size can be printed—we just leave a white border.
A cistern in Istanbul, apparently cobbled together from spare parts. This used to be the city’s water supply, it would fill to the ceiling with water delivered via the aqueducts.

I love the colour abd the echoee feel of the shot.
there’s a very “echo-ey” feel in there.. because of the acoustics it’s sometimes used as a concert venue for singers
Great shot – I couldn’t for the life of me get a photo I was happy with in there. Mind you that was pre-digital so didn’t want to waste too many shots trying.It’s a pretty cool atmosphere in there though, hey?
Nice!!weird – i was there last weekend :)
Nicely captured. Missed on going there but Istanbul is one of my all time fave places.
Great shot, Grant. The fiery colours are awesome and the water on the floor makes for some cool relections :)
Grant, this is a cistern built by the emperor Justinian.
Turkey is predominantly Moslem, and Moslems will use only running water. Therefore, the cisterns were rarely used by them. Istanbul is full of cisterns under the city; this is only one of them and is a favorite tourist stop.
thanks for the info Anita
cool, i love the rich textures and colors!
