Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
Istanbul is one of my favorite cities in the world and I am lucky to have a friend who lives there that lets me sleep on her couch when I visit. The first time I went to Turkey I went by myself and spent a month mostly hanging out on my friend’s balcony drinking wine, eating great food, and listening to sounds of neighbors and the call to prayer. Of course we ventured out to see some sights like the famous Hagia Sophia where this photo was taken. It’s difficult to avoid a crowd here and harder still to take photos of the stunning interior without having a tourist in your frame. However, I admired the metal work of the upper level railing enough to take this shot despite the crowd congregating below.
The beauty of the Hagia Sophia still comes through despite the crowd around you, in front of you, or through your frame.
