"I looked in temples, churches & mosques. But I found the Divine within my ️" – Rumi • I've visited many places of worship, especially Masjids. Nothing compares to the work of the great chief Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan. With that, I've started a new project to visit every structure he's ever made. This is the Suleymaniye Masjid, arguably his masterpiece. I absolutely love the energy of this place. The gentlemen sitting there is a scholar, I didn't want to do what I normally do (shoot then ask if necessary) and asked him if I could take a picture. He smiled, gave me a faint nod and continued with his prayers. •
