Sydney Opera House

I love the look of the Sydney Opera House on a bright day, the white tile glistening against the blue background. This was our third trip to Sydney, and the first time we went inside the iconic Sydney Opera House. It wasn’t to see a show, although we were quite tempted to see My Fair […]
