    Hagia Sophia in all its glory


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sebgeo, of Los Angeles, took this photo inside Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey. 'Hagia Sophia used to be an Orthodox church, later a mosque and now a museum,' he says. 'Beautiful light, magnificent architecture, lots of awe struck visitors.' His favorite part was the lighting. 'I loved the lighting,' he says. 'Especially the light beams coming through the windows.'
    - ssesha, CNN iReport producer

    This picture was taken during our trip to Istanbul. This was taken at Hagia Sophia. Hagia Sophia used to be an Orthodox church, later a mosque and now a museum. When we saw the serpentine queue for the tickets, we hoped it wasn’t just an overpriced tourist trap. It was anything but that. The ambience in there was beautiful in spite of the hordes of tourists.
