photoblog image Hagia Sophia Tower

Hagia Sophia Tower

Was in Istanbul last week and I got the opportunity to visit this Church/Mosque now turned Museum. It was once a Church then became a Mosque. This is a pic of one of the towers outside it. Here's some history if you are interested :

Hagia Sophia, (the Church of) Holy Wisdom, now known as the Ayasofya Museum, was an early Christian Church and later an Eastern Orthodox church which was transformed into a mosque in 1453 by the Turks.

Nice shot Foofie, and a bit of history too. I would up the contrast a bit more to give the building more depth.
