Turkish Delights

Nothing like beginning a journey tracing the cultural crossroads of antiquity at the very heart of this intersection - the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul Turkey. I rustled through the crowd clicking cameras and found some solace in a quiet corner where I was focussing my attention capturing some graphic details atop an ornate capitol, whilst the local cat found some solace on me.

These are some of my quick sketches responding to the symmetrical patterns and ornamentation around the mosques.
