Kind Imam Opens Mosque's Doors For Stray Cats
In Istanbul, Turkey, there’s a mosque where you can pray alongside cats.
We’re not kitten you! The Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque’s imam Mustafa Efe has been
letting stray cats in since last year. He wants to keep them warm during the
cold winter days.
Efe makes his guests feel exactly like at home. In fact, the felines are so safe
and comfy there that one cat even brought her kittens one by one! She placed her
fluffballs in the pulpit from where Efe preaches. “The kitty has found the heart
of compassion and mercy,” Efe wrote on Facebook.

A Daughter With Down Syndrome Taught Photography To Her Father
The inspiration for conducting a photographic duel was brought on by my
daughter Kaja who took her camera on a September school trip. I expected that,
in accordance with the digital limitlessness she would bring back hundreds of
photos, but to my surprise, Kaja took only five. I was astonished by the respect
with which my daughter approached the art of photography.
The five pictures that Kaja made were truly a revelation. Each of the frames
described only my daughter’s most important memories from the trip: a picture
(taken on the bus) of the fleeing fields, a picture of the sea together with the
mainland, a photo of the sea itself, a picture of a cloud in the shape of an
angel (Kaja told me that she saw her guardian angel in the clouds), and a photo
of an ice cream in a wafer.
My own adventure with photography has begun as recently as in 2011, but pretty
soon I was able to find my own style. From the beginning I focused on content
rather than form, and to tell a story in every picture has become my goal.
But this path has entailed that with time I started to look too widely at
issues, to expand frames too strongly and I also felt that I fell into patterns.
As every creator I felt it was time for a fresh look and I am very fortunate to
have Kaja who became my example.
