The sunset is awesome. The picture beneath it is a great study in light & dark (& I've always loved Arabic script.) The fifth shot is perfect, with the slightly diffused look. Very ethereal!

Hi Faraway,
I'm back to visiting my BlogFriends for the first time in about two weeks. I love this post! Look at the way you captured the heavy time held by the stones of the mosque. Is it the cropping or the intentionality of the photographer. The men are quite...fetching. The dreamy, saturated photo of the flag gave me a lump in my throat. Thank you so much for posting these.

Now I'm on to your previous posts.

Great photos. Sunset would work great for Skywatch Friday.

a great selection that captures the feel of the place. I am crazy about the black and white domes seen through the window, wow.

T is for terrific. The sunset and the mosques are my favourites. God, you're good!

Istanbul is really one of my favorite cities, and these shots capture it so perfectly. I especially love that first snap, which seems to evoke the hipness and glamor of the aquatic city so well. -X

Beautiful place that reminds me of the photos and stories from my Aunt and Uncle who lived in Istanbul for almost two years, back in the late 60's. The city looks the same...

Hi Faraway,
It's refreshing to find images up several days after the previous visit. I enjoyed looking at these again. Proust says that you can really only understand life and art in a second viewing. And I'm not being sarcastic!
