Photographer's Note

Turkish lamps come in a variety of color and shapes, and can be lit electrically or by candle votives. They can also be used as a hanging vase for fresh or dried flowers.

You can see and buy them here: Turkish Lamps.

I found this wonderful shop in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The Grand Bazaar (or Covered Bazaar, Turkish: Kapalıçarşı ("Covered Bazaar")) in Istanbul is one of the largest covered markets in the world with more than 58 streets and 4,000 shops, and has between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. See more at Grand Bazaar.

I wanted to purchase some of these so badly, but was afraid they would break on the long trip home. If I ever make it out there again, I will definitely buy some and have them shipped home! Or I might just buy them online, but then I can't haggle the price, so where's the fun in that!? :o)

Hope you enjoy the beautiful lamps I found in this shop!

P.S. Hi all, any suggestions on increasing the size? I've tried, but had to lower the quality considerably in order to keep the size larger, but the picture didn't look that great. Not sure what else I can do, please let me know, thanks!
