One Last Thing.
A few days ago, I went to an exhibition at the Tophane i Amire in Istanbul, a building designed by Sinan as a cannon foundry for the Ottoman fleet. There is – until May 31st – an exhibition on Koca Mimar Sinan. The best part of the show (at least for me) was a 16 minute video of Istanbul, seen over 4 seasons, from the minarets of the Master. It was breathtaking. I sat, completely transfixed, and got to see the city I love in a way I can never see it. Watch it in HD -16 minutes of your time, well worth it.
