Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Istanbul

Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Istanbul

This picture is used on my Constantinople Slave Market blog post, which uses the mosque as a landmark to identity its location. I found this spot by walking around the area with the paintings shown in that post loaded on my phone, looking for a place where the orientation of the mosque matched.
