I apologize for almost the year long absence, but I was [insert excuse here].

I have just returned from a trip to Istanbul and will be posting the images from this batch over the next couple of weeks.

I never do touristy things when I travel for many reasons, but one of the biggest is that tourists sights usually mean just buildings. But in Istanbul, I spent the first few days doing all of the touristy things and I was richly rewarded with such endless spectacle.

Amazing.
