CB&W: Letters O or P

Well, I haven’t done one of these for a while but I’ve been dying to get back into it. So here goes! This week’s photo challenge for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is the letters O or P. I’m going with O … for Opera House. My home town of Sydney has a pretty iconic and certainly unique looking opera house. Located on the water, nearby to the Harbour Bridge, it has been a focal point of this harbourside city since it’s construction ended in 1973 (construction started in 1959!). The opera house is made out of a combination of concrete, glass and pink granite but the most striking feature are it’s white tiled “sails”.

    1. Glad you enjoyed Sydney, John. You make an excellent point, it’s much bigger than you think it’ll be. Did you do the bridge walk across the flat surface or the climb up to the top?


      1. Just on the flat, though my companions talked about going to the top. My first night there I got lost and somehow ended up at the harbour, and took the ferry to Manly, where I was staying. Fun times, really…

      2. The ferry ride across the harbour is lovely. Certainly a nicer commute that catching the buses or braving traffic. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit, John … even getting lost has its moments 🙂


  1. I lived in Sydney for three years and never got tired of this view. Love how much a part of every day life the opera house is, and I’ve even slept in the steps during the winter sleepout. Great images.
