Sydney Opera House at Dusk

Recently I dropped a friend off in the city. As this was in the evening, soon after I dropped my friend off I took a few photos, such as this one.

Other than capturing the building, I wasn’t aiming for anything in particular. I think that worked out for the better.

Perhaps this wasn’t long enough of an exposure, but I do like how the water is affected, as well as the opera house’s appearance.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fifty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “On the Water“.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

For July each challenge is guest-curated, and each theme has been announced.
John Steiner of Journeys With Johnbo is curating this one.
The rest for July are as follows:

July 10th – Anne Sandler of Slow Shutter Speed: “Black and White”

July 17th – Rusha Sams of Oh The Places We See: “Getting Away”

July 24th – Beth Smith of Wandering Dawgs: “Along Back Country Roads”

July 31st – Ana Campo of Anvica’s Gallery: “Postcards”

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. Thank you for joining in this week. Some day I hope to see that iconic building in real life. It is still on my bucket list for when the world gets closer to the “old normal.”

    • Thank you for having me.
      I’d say that when you get the opportunity, check out the building from viewpoints that aren’t shown as often as the commonly seen ones. Sure, they show the building in an appealing way, but the building’s better appreciated in different contexts.

    I honestly think it is one of the most beautiful buildings every built SH, and you’ve captured it well. I thought I’d be disappointed when I saw it in person but it was even prettier than I expected. I’m sorry in hindsight that I didn’t tour the interior.

    I love this photo. The white sails of the opera house and the deep grey clouds. I think I have seen several of your photos of this amazing building that have brought it to me in a new light. My husband and I went to see an opera when we were in Sydney on our Australian adventure 30 years ago. I cannot remember what the opera was . That file has gone but having a drink in the interval and looking out to the water …that is still clear in my mind!

    • It’s an interesting building but, despite my taking a fair few photos of it, I’m not particularly fond of it.

      Not seen an opera in there. Saw Nick Cave there once though. Not exactly the best gig I’ve seen sound-wise.

      Guess you’ll have to see an opera there again. Have a new file ready to go.

  4. An iconic building and I like the way it stands out against the background of the sky and foreground of the water.
