Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

10/6/10 - Day 292
We hired a private tour guide today to take us through some of the major Istanbul sights. This image is of the Hagia Sophia, started in 532 A.D. and finished in 537 A.D., which for c. 900 years served as the "eastern Vatican". With the Ottoman takeover, it was converted to Istanbul's most important mosque for c. 500 years. For the last 80 years, it has served as a museum.

While not in the greatest condition, it is an impressive space of amazing scale. It is said that the Statue of Liberty (sans torch) could fit inside the dome.
