There's a game on Friendfeed where people guess where a photo was taken. My friend Gary is the reigning expert at this game.
In that vein, guess where this photo of me and my brother Tom was taken. It's from last month:
As a hint, on the same day, we went to a delightful museum where we saw these works:
Islamic vase. The blue used in Islamic art is very eye-catching. I am curious whether Istanbul is as exotic to visit as the sense you get from the art.
Courtyard inside the museum. It's good when museums have natural lighting.
I find it impressive when artists can mold glass into their desired colors and textures.
Vases can be very interesting, because they combine form and function. The shape is basically defined, and yet there are infinite variations.
