The Blue Mosque

Nothing particularly deep or complex today.

Just simple blue beauty.

The mid-sections of Istanbul’s Sultan Ahmed Mosque contain more than 20,000 Iznik (the ancient city of Nicaea) tiles, whose vibrant blue, green, and turquoise hues lend the structure its popular nickname, The Blue Mosque.


Happy Birthday to DBS, another seeker of beauty in the world, and a lifelong lover of blue.
