What is it about the Sydney Opera House that makes it so iconic?

February 28, 2013  •  1 Comment

 

Surely one of the most photographed buildings in the world, the Sydney Opera House attracts visitors from all over the globe. Even today it's futuristic design does not fail to amaze onlookers. 

 

I was racking my brain as to how I could photograph this masterpiece without it looking like every other photograph of the building.  Especially seeing that I was on the other side of the harbor.

I was a long way from the building, but I had my Canon 70-200mm lens with me and so I decided to concentrate on what actually makes the building so iconic, its construction.

By focusing in close we are able to see the many thousands of individual and unique pieces that are slotted together to make the final shape. Each one beautiful in its own right. By highlighting the intricate nature of the building, I hope I have managed to get you to appreciate the genius behind its design.

Great point. We should always look for new methods when approaching something that's been fine a lot
