Sydney Opera House sunrise.

One of the most photogenic buildings on the planet, from whatever angle and at whatever time of the day you take a shot of it, it looks great..

This was taken at dawn, half an hour or so before sunrise, from the West end of the Circular Quay.

 

Seagull stealing my breakfast

I caught this seagull stealing my breakfast one morning in Capri, Italy.

The table was nicely set for a breakfast on our room balcony and this seagull just could not help himself. In fact, it did help himself to my muffin!

Maybe it was trying to have it with some jam too.

Beijing Opera House

I made the most of a rare clear sky to take a shot of the futuristic Beijing Opera  House building, officially called National Centre for the Performing Arts (or National Grand Theatre in Chinese 国家大剧院).

You enter the building by an hallway that goes underneath the artificial lake that surrounds it.

And it’s no surprise that the locals call it “The Egg”.
