City under my wings by Metkan City under my wings by Metkan

By the help of a 300mm , puting a seagull in front of this gorgeous silhouette of Hagia Sophia was the goal for me at that moment.This was shot in Kabatas shore heading the historic peninsula of Istanbul.

Beautiful shot of a landmark with such a colorful history. :) First serving as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral, then a Muslim mosque, and now a museum. It's an art historian's dream. :aww:

The church of Agia Sofia was meant to be a church, they ruined its paintings and the historical artifacts and forced the building to be a mosque..now under the pressure from the church they had to make it a museum..sorry for my bad english :/ but you just cant trust a mongol barabarian to keep a historical building preserved after all :(

True enough, as it goes. Hagia Sophia was certainly intended to be a church. History, however, has a funny way of changing things. As a museum, Hagia Sophia has lost none of it's grace, beauty, and wonder. It's infused with years and years of worship (all kinds of worship) and it still stands. Better to be a museum and accessible to all than to have been entirely lost in the annals of time. :aww:
