Photographer's Note

Sydney's spectacular opera house. Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, its construction took place between 1958-1974. It is meant to simulate the sails of sailboats. I had always wanted to see this edifice where my favorite operatic soprano Joan Sutherland performed.

I am eternally grateful to Lisa Delpeoples and Murray Lines who gave so much of their time to show us their beloved city. For this photo, Lisa drove us across Sydney Harbor Bridge to the north shore, and on a dark parking lot allowed me to set up my camera on a wall to produce a series of time exposures. With the lens on my camera extended to 70 mm, I could get a perfect view of the Opera House, without the bridge above it, as was the case in The Bridge and the Opera. The streaks of light are created by a the lights of a passing boat.
