This is about sky not opera house, so I’ve focused on what counts here.
Now that’s not a sign you see every day, particularly not attached to a railing of Sydney’s Opera House. Yet there it was. Lo and behold, a peek over the edge revealed a seal that was indeed resting. Resting so profoundly, in fact, that I was slightly concerned it had, um, over-rested, but closer examination showed it was breathing. In the 10 minutes I watched it, this seal did not so much as twitch.
The theme for Jude’s Bench Series in February is black and white. I had an idea of the bench photos I wanted to share — all I needed was a reason to be in the vicinity of the Opera House after dark so I could take the shots! Even if you’ve never been to Sydney, you have probably seen photos of the Opera House jutting into the harbour. Benches are dotted all along the broad walkways by the water, perfect for gazing out at the hustle and bustle of Sydney — not that there is a lot of action at 10:30pm on a Wednesday. 😉 I took these photos five hours after the photos in this post.
I had a bit of time to kill last evening before meeting a friend, and how better to kill time on a glorious summer evening than down by the Opera House with a glass of bubbly and my camera?
