210 / stone stories

Every time I walked past these walls in Istanbul,
& now when I look at the photos, I saw them
as masterworks

Depending on the light, the stones glowed  


more like jewels

not just here, in many areas,
the masons clearly loved what they did

& those who repaired, also

I saw many walls where there was a deep respect for
their predecessor's work, even when matching stones or bricks
weren't available

at least those are the stories the walls spoke to me

there might not be too many 
as interested as I was/am

so this is just one area near our hotel, I took hundreds..
theres an extra dimension, being there, of course.
I love how photographs can put one back there, as if its real
