Artist's Description

well I’m having a week or so of pretty pictures before getting back into the black and whites and the IR’s that I myself prefer and while scanning some other work I found this image of the Opera House…. similar but still quite different to the "House of Golden Light ":http://www.redbubble.com/people/juileep/art/925... posted a day or so ago…. this is a straight 35mm SLR capture with Konica 100 film. The similarity to the other image of this wonderful sculputral building is in the way I’ve just sat and waited for the light to be magical. Also both pictures have little hints of rainbows in them although its much more pronouced in this one.

This was shot very late in the day just on twilight. The lights around the base of the Opera House are just starting to come on and the sky and the water are all golden and replete with the completion of their daytime duties…. a short moment of golden light and then the soft velvet night will kick in and give it another totally different look…..

Another reason that I put this shot up is that the planned reburbishments to this lovely building are in the news again at the moment…. its a beautiful looking building but not very good for actual Opera performances …for whatever reasons…. So some architects are suggesting adding another box shaped building to it and others don’t like that idea and in the middle of this public conversation came a letter to the paper from one of our esteemed ex-prime ministers…. Mr Paul Keating esq…… and in his letter to the public he described the advent of the Opera House as “like Sydney being touched on the shoulder by a rainbow…” so in a way then this picture is me illustrating what he said about this beloved building….. it’s a structure that graces the city like a rainbow graces the skys……
