    fine looking place, great shot of it Ted

  • The city of Konya is powerfully proud of its greatest poet Larry… And their respect is reflected in the way they buff his workplace like a fine gemstone. Thanks for the support.

    This is so beautiful in its simplicity, Ted

  • The art of the Muslim culture is so new to me Shulie, and yes it has a minimalist majesty that’s defined as much in palette and texture as in line and form. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Once again, the light is exquisite!

  • Afternoon summer sunlight slipping into a marbled nook, and igniting a glowing golden latticework… Sometimes we merely have to click the shutter, huh Mel? Thanks for enjoying my clicking.

  • So nice of you Kay. Glad you agree with me that sometimes glow itself can be captured if you’re lucky enough to be there when it ignites.

    Beautiful light and color. Thanks for sharing with the Art of the Middle East group.

  • I am new to appreciating the power of minimalism in the architectural statements of muslim artists. Here the creator of this scene seemed to stand aside and merely say… “Look!” And when we do we see exactly how his or her feelings brought together the summer afternoon sun and this nook’s marble and golden latticework. Thanks for encouraging my appreciation Eyal.
