Time Lapse Tuesday: Süleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul

February 10, 2015 G Adventures

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. So, grab a patch of grass and watch the throngs go by in sunny Istanbul.

Having taken eight years to complete, the Süleymaniye Mosque combines Byzantine architecture with iconic minarets found in Islamic architecture the world over, making for one serious (and good-looking) Istanbul landmark.
