The Ad Hoc Fountain ©2007 by Trici Venola. Karakoy, Istanbul. This fountain, piped from plumbing of the Republic, sits on top of an upside-down Byzantine marble column capital so old it looks melted. The marble it sits on is worn from generations of Ottoman workmen's feet being washed prior to prayer. By asking his employer, I was able to get the boy to hold still long enough to draw. One glance: many layers of history.
