RE: Showcase Sunday: Blue hour

in #showcasesundaylast year

I really like the #showcasesunday tag for just this reason; it gives people an opportunity to share some great finds with a brand new audience. And yes, I can imagine you running madly from place to place to catch the light! I've done the same. 😁

What is that spherical building in the third picture? It looks like an observatory of some sort, and I'm rather fascinated by it.

Sort:  

Yes, I have become very fond of that tag!
The building is the Turkish Mosque Yiali Tzami. It is the first mosque built in Crete after the Turkish conquest of the city of Chania in 1649. Now it is used for art exhibitions.

Awesome, thanks for the link! Do you ever get to see any of the exhibits?

Unfortunately no, I haven't. I do live on the same island but it is a 5 hours drive to Chania and I admit that all the times I have been there I was preoccupied with other things to do!
Maybe next time :)
