another somewhat over processed Infrared film shot of the Sydney Opera House… all though this is most likely one of the most photographed structures in the country I still find that I never tire of challenging myself to find just one more perspective of this magnificent building…..

    Uno Duo Trise Quatro Chinqua… something like that

  • hi Phil and thanks … it was kind of more… mono .. monotone…. duo…each of the three photo’s has two clear planes or points of view that make the image…. and there are three of them…. well there are more but I’m only putting three of them up…hope that makes sense… trouble is I have so many shots of the old opery house that finding new names for each shot is getting harder and harder….. oh dear…..

    C’mon, enough already…
    any chance of seeing these as a tripctic, or whatever the hell it’s called…

  • actually I have another set… which is currently unpublished …. that forms a more coherent triptyh….. this are kind of the same tonally and in there sort of oddness… but I don’t think I’d put them all up in the same frame…. well maybe I’ll think about it…. cheers…..:)

    Infrared just makes this so unique!

  • I think that is why I love it so…. it’s difficult and tempermental stuff the film… but when it hits the mark… it really hits it….. thanks……:)

    you know when we first took Fleur to Sydney and we went out on a ferry she started meowing at the opera house…and it really does look like cat ears!

  • you know I can relate to that… it really does look like some sort of fantasy creature… and the shell sparkles and shines like armour as well…. it’s an awesome building… no wonder we love it so…. well I know I do……:)

    I love it to…and it lives in such a wonderful spot. I remember my brother telling me about the other entries in the competition for this building on this site…and some were just boxes! with all the troubles that have gone on with this building we are very lucky to have it

  • yes it was very controversial for sure… and massively expensive to build… if we had known how much it was going to cost before it was buildt …well it wouldn’t have been built basically…. but my god I’m glad it was…. I have seen images of some of the other entrys for this and gorden benett some of them are so boring and bland no joke….. like you say some were just square blocks … this one was sooooo radical to be picked and it’s been such a winner…. thank god someone with a brain and sensibility got to pick this as the winner….. we were pretty awful to the architect mind you…. mostly I guess because it went like about $100 million over budget… and that was back in the sixties…. imagine…. but still it was kind of out first really ‘grown up’ building…. and looking at how beloved it is and how iconic… worth every damned penny …..
