Built in 537, and reputed to be the Worlds largest Cathedral for a thousand years thereafter Hagia Sophia in Istanbul Turkey still retains its Grand Stature. Considered as the epitome of Byzantine Architecture, that is reputed to have changed the History of Architecture, this former Church, later turned into a Mosque and currently a Museum boasts a clear dome height of 55m , and a footprint of 82 x 73 m.
Perhaps one of the most visited Tourist Attractions in Istanbul, I quickly discovered that it’s difficult to capture it’s magnitude in a single image, perhaps, my wide angle lens was not wide enough :-).
From Every Angle is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, so I’ve posted images of some of the angles that I photographed the inside of the building from in response to the prompt. Tripods are taken away by security as you enter the building, so you have to resort to using the available light and shooting hand held.
