Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art (Turkey)

An amazing component that comes along with travel is that I gain an exposure to local artistry. There has been countless times when I want to bring some back as souvenirs or gifts for family and friends. However, at the end of the day, I cannot buy them all for financial reasons or practicality, especially now with the luggage allowance surcharges. So I have decided to capture them with my camera and share them this way…

Here are some Works of Art that I found while traveling in Turkey back in 2010.
