Turkey - Istanbul May-June 2010

A recent trip to Greece provided an opportunity to extend a few days in Istanbul, where we haven't been in several years. Visiting some of our favorite sites was a treat, though we were surprised at then large crowds in places like Hagia Sophia where we have seen much fewer visitors on past trips. Nevertheless, it was an opportunity to add a gallery of images that I had not photographed since film days. I hope you enjoy my visit!
