Sydney Opera House


0712 Sydney Opera House

Sometimes it's fun to spend a day being a tourist in your own city. And what could be more pleasant, on a sunny summer Saturday, than wandering down Circular Quay, around to the Opera House, up through the Botanical Gardens (very nice vegetable and fetta pizza at the cafe for lunch) and then taking a quick squizz at the August Sander exhibition?

August Sander set out to make a photographic 'atlas' of the German people, photographing all sorts of types - farmers and women, workmen and children, families and the old - over several decades in the first half of the twentieth century. Much of his work is housed in the Getty, in Los Angeles - this exhibition is on at the AGNSW till 3 February.

I've never seen the Opera House from that angle before. Interesting. Goodness, it looks hot. And bright. Here, it's dark and not at all hot.

Happy New Year. I look forward to more of your words and pictures next year. (Not to say for the rest of this year.)
