The morning.
Constantine might
Recognize his city
As his church turns

Just back… from ten days straddling two continents..

Istanbul, Turkey

Aging… Um…. Maturing. Still wondering what I’ll be when I grow up.

    What a beautiful scene!

  • What a magical place Mel. I was not prepared for the intricate variety of the country Either in terms of geographical breadth, historical depth, hospitablel warmth, or cultural intracacy. Those four dimensions are an awesome artistic challenge.

  • How many times has the sun risen since Constantine imagined the Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom) basilica? And here’s just one of those seemingly eternal moments. It feels almost spiritual, huh? Thanks Tammera.

    Ted this is mysterious and lovely! I’m hoping for this sight next year.

  • You will love Turkey Barbara.. After your amazing Italian work, Turkey will surprisingly grow upon that rich cultural experience. Can’t wait to see what you’ll show us.
