One Shelley Street Sydney is the new home of Macquarie Group. A corporation much maligned for the stupendous fees charged at the carpark of the one and only Sydney Airport, which they own. Anyhoo, this wonderful amazing building sprang up sometime ago and I found it during one of my walks around Sydney about a year or so ago. Then went back again about six months ago for a photographic study of it and here are the results. I hope you like them.

Photos below are from the Vivid Festival last year (2010)

Info on Vivid Festival 2010 below

Seven historic buildings had images and designs projected onto them from 6:00pm until midnight. The images are repeated/rotated at regular intervals.

The seven buildings that are lit during the festival are as follows:

St Mary’s Cathedral
Hyde Park Barracks
The Mint
Parliament House
State Library of New South Wales
Palace Garden Gate
Sydney Conservatorium of Music

The following information comes from:

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It was conceived and largely built by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who, in 2003, received the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honour. The citation stated:

“ There is no doubt that the Sydney Opera House is his masterpiece. It is one of the great iconic buildings of the 20th century, an image of great beauty that has become known throughout the world – a symbol for not only a city, but a whole country and continent. ”

The Sydney Opera House was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. Currently, it is the most recently constructed World Heritage Site to be designated as such, sharing this distinction with such ancient landmarks as Stonehenge and the Giza Necropolis. It is one of the 20th century’s most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world.

The Sydney Opera House is situated on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It sits at the northeastern tip of the Sydney central business district (the CBD), surrounded on three sides by the harbour (Sydney Cove and Farm Cove) and neighboured by the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Contrary to its name, the building houses multiple performance venues. As one of the busiest performing arts centres in the world, hosting over 1,500 performances each year attended by some 1.2 million people, the Sydney Opera House provides a venue for many performing arts companies including the four key resident companies Opera Australia, The Australian Ballet, the Sydney Theatre Company and the Sydney Symphony, and presents a wide range of productions on its own account. It is also one of the most popular visitor attractions in Australia, with more than seven million people visiting the site each year, 300,000 of whom take a guided tour.

I live in Sydney, Australia and love to travel. I enjoy creating landscapes scenes using my Canon DSLR cameras and lenses.
