Time Lapse Tuesday: Hagia Sophia in Istanbul

This week’s time-lapse takes us to Istanbul. Grab a patch of grass and watch the throngs outside the Süleymaniye Mosque.

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. So, grab a patch of grass and watch the throngs go by in sunny?Istanbul.

The largest enclosed space in the entire world for more than a thousand years, the Hagia Sophia—consecrated as a church in 537, converted to a mosque in 1453 and declared a museum in 1935—has been part of the cultural fabric of Istanbul since its inception.
