Ten years ago, today...
...I was in Turkey with art-historian friend Allan K.
Allan took the photo (left) of Hagia Sophia, in Istanbul on that trip, one of many he took for the college slide library and for his Art Images for College Teaching--AICT--site.
While Allan took photos of art-historical importance , I sat in coffee shops and ate Turkish delight--the kind studded with pistachios. Or I tagged along and drew in my sketchbook (right). The carpet in the background is a little kilim from Cappadocia.
