Curvaceous Icon : Weekly Photo Challenge

operahouse and bridge-1_3845x2884

I’m sure this building needs no introduction. From every viewpoint its contours swoop and flow like waves on the ocean.

It dwarfs the people gazing at its grandeur.

But it is not the only curvaceous icon on Sydney’s waterfront.

The old “Coat hanger” is peering over her shoulder.

If you look very closely you will see tiny ant-like dots, brave souls,ย nearly at the top as they climb this Sydney monument.


I wonder how many other Australian bloggers have chosen to showcase our well known buildings in this weeks photo challenge as Cheri asks us toย “find inspiration in the curves around you.”
