Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Have been a bit snowed under this week, so haven’t written any poetry, nor read any blogs – have a lot of catching up to do this weekend…

In the meantime, here’s my contribution to this week’s photo challenge: different views looking up at the Sydney Opera House that I took a while ago with that archaic thing known as a film SLR πŸ™‚

What a view there must be from up there

I’ve used the (damaged) photo below before for my poem Sometimes which I posted back in May but which fits in quite nicely with the ‘Up’ theme, too

Happy weekends, Fellow Bloggers πŸ™‚

  1. I am very fond of the Opera House. It is such an amazing piece of architecture and engineering. It makes me happy whenever I see it. Your photos are excellent. The old gal looks really good in black and white!

    • Thanks, Selma – yes, she is rather an ‘old gal’ πŸ˜€ now especially on the inside with all that 70s styling, but she still has great external curves for her age πŸ˜‰

  2. Wow, those photos are amazing – you are great with the angles (very sci fi – almost scary looking). I would love to see something at the opera house one day (I’ve only seen it from the outside). Have you ever been to an opera or concert there?

    • Thanks, Gabe πŸ™‚ I have been to a few things there over the years including a few operas, symphony concerts and a taiko concert (Japanese drums) which was amazing – I must say, though, that the main concert hall is not the most comfortable leisure space ever designed (perhaps it’s designed to keep the audience awake…if you go, take a cushion :))

    • Hello Pen – it would be awesome to go up there, especially at night – a few years back a few protesters managed to do just that and paint a big red ‘No War’ on the highest sail – maybe they could give us some tips πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks, Monica πŸ™‚

      Had a fantastic holiday, and now have a bit of catching up to do with work and a university assignment, but look forward to rejoining the Blogosphere shortly.

      Hope you are still enjoying the after-effects of the wedding activity.
