Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate


Once again I am late in responding to this week’s challenge: “Intricate.”  You have all seen photos of the iconic opera house in Sydney, Australia.  It is easily recognizable by its intersecting graceful arches.  Have you ever wondered what it looks like on the inside?  This is a photo from the lobby of one of the several performance venues within the complex.  The architecture is just as incredible from the inside as it is on the exterior.   The arches are all formed out of reinforced concrete but with many supports and stringers providing the structure.  All of those supports create straight lines which intersect with the arches at a multitude of different angles.  The complexity yet beauty of this structure amazed me and I hope you find it interesting also.  Have a great weekend!
