Australia. Province of New South Wales. Sydney. The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge seen from Mrs Macquarie’s Point. A lonely man walks by the Pacific Ocean seaside. The Sydney Opera House is situated on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour. The opera with its spherical-sectioned shells was built by the architect Jorn Utzon. The roofs of the House are constructed of 1,056,000 glazed white granite tiles. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the tallest steel arch bridge in the world, spanning the width of Sydney Harbour. Trains, cars, bicycles, and pedestrians sweep across the bridge everyday, getting from one part of Sydney City to another. © 1999 Didier Ruef
