 I’m always in awe when surveying the construction and workmanship of these ancient sacred spaces.

Their symmetry is perfect. Just how did those architects, stonemasons and engineers do this way back when?

It’s kind of humbling to think that this incredible edifice, which has already been here hundreds of years, will be here long after I’m gone.

Thanks for visiting …

Dramatically Angular … Sydney Opera House

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

~*~

~*~

The opera house ~ on the stage and in the hallways echo the dramas of life and vision and creativity.

The Sydney Opera House immediately comes to mind as a place of great theatrical drama, spectacularly reflected in all its dramatic, angular, architectural glory.

One little story … the tour guide told us that when the great (and superstitious) tenor, Luciano Pavarotti, sang at the opera house in 1983 he could not be persuaded to walk on the purple carpet because it was the same colour as coffin lining.

That, my friends, is a dramatic angle …

Thanks for visiting,

Window of Time

Tourists

~*~

For Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Week 28 I’ve selected an image taken while on a guided tour of the Sydney Opera House.

This magnificent music venue perched on Sydney Harbour is a marvel of design and construction, and offers all kinds of interesting photographic opportunities.

On tours my tendency is to lag behind, my eyes and imagination caught for far longer than the guide’s strict window of time allows. Still, what I miss in the commentary I gain through my own observation.

Thanks for visiting …
