Back in 2005, I finally got to see the Sydney Opera House in person. Only to discover that it looked nothing like I’d understood it to look from photos and the TV.
I was surprised by the many different elements to the structure.
Seen from the side, the building’s shape had so much movement: calling to mind overlapping fans, dunes or sheets billowing in the wind. The pattern of the ceramic tiles made me think of water cascading down a mirror.
It was several weeks after I’d made my visit before I realised that I had been so fascinated by the frame of the building, that I never actually set foot inside.
I know that the third photo isn’t as crisp as it could be, but I really like the image and the way it seems to mirror the angles in the opening shot.
Please let me know your thoughts on the edit and the choice of images for the exercise. Any advice/considerations you can offer on improving my architectural photography would be greatly appreciated as it’s something that I rarely do.
