Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House

As I write this I am sat in the lobby of the Shangri-La hotel charging my camera battery after enjoying dinner at Opera Bar, Sydney Opera House with a fantastic Jive band playing classic tunes that had the crowd on their feet.

Sydney Opera house, as most of you know is a stunning piece of architecture hailed as one of the greatest buildings of the 20th century. It is synonymous with this city and as a matter of fact without it one could say Sydney would not be Sydney. If you thought it looked amazing in photos, you were right. But if you thought that was the best way to see it then my friends you are very mistaken. Any photo pales in comparison to seeing it with the naked eye. Located on the Harbour, which is also home to another Sydney landmark, 'The Sydney Harbour bridge' known locally as the 'coat hanger'. It is simply breathtaking and at night when lit up will leave you in awe.

The battery on my camera has sufficient charge, so I am now headed up to the 36th floor of the hotel for some panoramic views of Sydney where I will take some photos of the Opera house. After that its back down to circular quay and along the Harbour to take some night shots of the opera house, bridge and Luna park all beautifully illuminated at night.

This city with its rich culture, friendly people, great food and plenty of entertainment has offered a fantastic travel experience and is definitely worthwhile visiting again.
