Istanbul. September, 2014

In keeping with yesterday's "modern v. ancient" blog entry, we offer this. A caretaker on break outside the Suleymaniye mosque, dating from the 1550s. Reportedly Istanbul's largest mosque, it sits on the city's highest hill. Which, if you've ever climbed some of this city's elevations, is saying something. A cigarette, a cellphone, perhaps some texting. Time marches on.
