The Sydney Opera House -- Post 406 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

In March 2010, we visited Australia, New Zealand and Fiji on a three week Grand Circle Travel Tour to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and I took some photographs with my trusty digital camera.

1)  While in Sydney, one of our tours took us to and inside the world famous Sydney Opera House.  Wow.  Here is a picture of the front entrance:

2)  Up closer to the outside shell of the opera house:

The exterior is made of tiles bonded to a concrete framework made from sections of a sphere.

3)  Inside the opera house:

4)  A view from the water:

Unfortunately, I've lost the memories of all the details of this vacation - I know what we saw but can't remember what we were told.  Fortunately, I found my Facebook photo albums from our 2010 vacation with pictures and some captions so all is not lost.  I found that I posted very few photos from this vacation on Genea-Musings.

Great pictures! The first looks like Darth Vader's helmet from that angle!
