[color=white]During my recent trip to Sydney, I tried to capture the famous Sydney Opera House in Bennelong Point. I took 50 or so frames, but upon review, most seemed very similar to most other photos of this famous site I've seen before. I was very surprised at the size of this cluster of halls. In the past, I had always thought the Opera House was one very large building. In fact, there are close to 1,000 rooms! Furthermore, it's hard to believe that the Opera House is the venue for over 2,500 events per year.

Very cool shot.

My recollection of the opera house is if your standing within a few yards of it, the surface on it looks kinda nasty.

However, step back 100 meters or more and it looks fantastic.

I like your perspective, for sure.

Thanks, guys. Terry, you're so right. Up close, some of the tiles are dirty, chipped and looking rather worn. Not all of them, but certainly far from being as pristine as the structures themselves.
