20 Hours in Istanbul

We have been home for almost two weeks. That may not excite you...but to our crew it is a welcome break from being on the road.
Twenty five years ago Ann and I were looking at apartments in downtown San Diego. The "Frost House" (the home of 19th century lumber barons) in Golden Hills was high on our list. The apartment was located in the attic of the historic home and had an incredible view of downtown and the harbor...if you didn't mind standing on on tiptoes to look out a small round window high in the gable. We have often talked about a thought we had as we looked out that window; A book titled "365 Sunsets from the Frost House"....we had the idea of mounting a camera in the window and taking one picture a day, every day, for one full year, at the same time of day and of the same view.
Nothing ever came of it, we didn't rent the apartment, but I have never forgotten the view or the idea.
Since we have been in one spot for more than a week and had some time to spare...I thought I would give you the Istanbul version of our decades old project. No spiffy names for this one...just watching a day pass by in Istanbul.
