Random Monument

Istanbul Park
As I walked from the Blue Mosque to the Hagia Sophia I passed this monument.

Istanbul Park 3
I didn't take the time to figure out what it was a monument to, or why it was there.

Istanbul Park 4
I just stopped because I liked the way the sun was hitting it and making the gold mosaics sparkle.

Istanbul Park 2
And the way the birds were lined up so neatly across the top, barely moving, they almost looked like they were a part of the monument itself and not just sitting there resting.

I hope you have an amazing weekend planned - how many of you are gearing up to travel next week (American Thanksgiving?) What are your tactics to make the trip less painful?

Speaking of birds, I haven't posted anything by Eva Cassidy in a very long time, here's her amazing "Songbird."
