Sydney Opera House

Today's post is a little departure from what and how I usually shoot. I was happy for a grey and overcast sky one morning in Sydney and wandered around the Opera House, not really sure what I was planning to shoot, since it's a building that has probably been shot from every angle imaginable. I found that I was taken to the details and lines of the building. To me, it was the up-close and more abstract pieces of it that really felt beautiful.

  1. Beautiful pictures! We've all seen the Opera House from afar, as a whole, but this gives me a new perspective on the perfection of the details.

  6. I love these! The opera house is incredibly interesting. When I visited Sydney last year, the tour was probably one of the favourite things I did. I have so much appreciation for the architect.

  13. I love these images! I worked at the Opera House for a number of years before my babies were born and this is how I picture it in my mind, not the grand, tourist images you usually see. It is an incredible building, weather worn and majestic at the same time. What I love even more are the labyrinth of tunnels and rooms that exist inside, away from the public eye. To me, its such a magical place.
