Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

Originally uploaded by Sir Nadroj

I really love this. Named after the hit swing-style tune, Sir Nadroj has delivered a gracefully rendered atmosphere fluently emphasizing Turkish architectural vernacular as well as a touch of cultural heritage with use of the Indian printed elements from the Orient Expedition product line. Although I slightly miss the ogee style arches so commonly associated with Byzantine design, I particularly fancy the fountain as both a realistically and aesthetically fitting facet to an overall beautiful scene (even despite the fact that Jordan has only built it and thrown it on flickr to boast the fact that he’s got his hands a certain piece earlier than most other people have. But hey, as a common follower of his work, that is something to which I have grown accustomed. This time he even admitted it. Ha!)
