It is an architectural gem, because of its setting as well as its design. Thank you for your encouraging comment, kidda cafe.

Viewers might like to see what is on the other side of the Opera House!

Ian Stehbens on June 13, 2009

I see that you enjoy Birchgrove, Richard. I have done a few laps of the cricket oval there. And had a few meals in my favourite sweet shop in Harris Park.

Thanks for your visit.

Have you considered adding your excellent photos to Picture Australia a project of the National Library?

Ian Stehbens on June 19, 2009

Thanks for this referral, Richard. I hadn't but I will investigate this further, on your encouragement.

Sydney is very beautiful, I very much like that. Unfortunately, only in the satellite map and you enjoy the photos. I am from Shanghai, China!

vatican811251. I am very pleased that this photo allows you to see the beauty of Sydney, especially the beauty and majesty of the Opera house and Bridge.

You also live in a grand city with many stunning buildings.
