It is so cool to meet you thru your blog! awesome comments about your work and travels. I hve to thank you for these gret photos of the tiles in Topkapki Palace. i have finished reading the fourth of a series of novels by Jason Goodwin, he wrote non-fiction first abotu istanbul, then fiction about Turkey in the Ottoman Empire. This last was set in the harem and thru your photos of tiles i have a greater sense of the location. What inspiration that trip must have been!Rose MaryJ
