The Sydney Opera House really is quite beautiful. I’d never really thought about it before but that’s what happens when you live with something like that, you just take it for granted. But I really had a good look at it on the weekend and it’s a stunning piece of work.
From first thing in the morning when the early joggers are out and about (and I must say I’m quite jealous of their running track, not that I’d necessarily be running but it would be a nice morning walk).
Until late afternoon when the wedding parties turn up for the album shots.
In fact I’m guessing that it must be one of the most photographed icons in the world. I know every time I walked past on the weekend I saw hundreds of cameras of all kinds, snap and shoot, phone, tripod, professional, you name it, the opera house was being snapped by it.
We walked by at lunch time and I could think of worse places to sit and have a drink.
You can sit and watch over the harbour to the ferry bays and the city.
Although I think this chef was glad to see the end of the lunch rush hour.
It’s when you go by on a ferry that you realise how massive it really is.
There are over one million tiles on that roof and they just look glorious. It took years to complete and the budget was a complete blowout but it was definitely worth it.
