Turkish Tile

The last month or so has been jammed full of travel for me.  Tucson, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington DC and most recently,Turkey.  I promise a travelog post soon, but in the meantime I had to share photos of these beautiful Iznik tiles from Istanbul.  From the Blue Mosque to Topkapi Palace these intricate tiles adorned the interior spaces of many buildings.  I was mesmerized by their patterns and colors.
