Turquoise Turkey: Topkapi Tiles and more

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My family took a fabulous trip to Turkey in July.  We had the opportunity to visit many beautiful historic sites.  I was consistently drawn to the amazing tile work and attempted to take photographs of my favorites.  I didn’t do any extra editing on these, so please forgive the glare and some of the wonky ones.  I hope someone out there gets some inspiration from these lovely works of art.
