Big Blue Mosque
Naomi looking quite lovely adorned in her scarf at the Blue mosque. Always feels a little strange at first entering a house of worship as a visitor, even more so here. But surrounded by mobs of Germans, Russians, and French, that feeling passed quickly. While snapping shots, I moved further back into the outer portion of the space in hopes of securing a better vantage point of domes above when I noticed movement behind me. Women praying behind an ornate wooden screen. Rising and kneeling like their male counterparts up front. Oh right this is not just another basilica.
