Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

Grand. It all depends on your interpretation doesn’t it? If I go to ‘grand’ places I tend to focus in on the small details rather than the big picture, so maybe that’s why, even with forty thousand photos, I found grand hard to find.

I don’t feel very grand today, but I remember that I felt the Bosphorus was grand. From a boat, this body of water is awe inspiring as are the buildings that line it.

Here is the Ciragan Palace, now a luxurious hotel.

My photos look small on my new theme, but if you click on them you can see full size versions!

Can you show us something REALLY grand?
