This is the fourth, and again a much closer look at the wonderful textures, form, shape, and lines, of one of the roofs of the Sydney Opera House.

This is about 20 to 30 feet away, sometimes much closer and I used my normal lens or my zoom lens..... Not much crop at all.....

I walked with my trusty walker, along with my sister Jill, right around the base of the building, when in Sydney recently, about two months ago.

ps; It took me over an hour, to walk around th building. stopping all the time, to take photos at differant angles, but it was worth it.....

Wow that's really cool. I've only ever seen photos of the opera house from afar, I had no idea there were so many details and textures in it.

What a beautiful abstract photo. The texture and detail in all the lines and shapes is nothing short of awe inspiring. And the beautiful sky with snow white clouds add so much contrast and beauty to the photo.

I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well! I hope tomorrow you will wake up feeling much better.

What great energy you've caught here with all the angles - very cool perspective, I had no idea the sails looked like this up close.
