Of course we went to see the Opera House when we stayed in Sydney in Oct. 2007. Early morning we've been the only ones that wanted to do a guided tour, that way we got our very own tour guide ;-) We walked through the building and got all the special things explained. Very nice tour and a friendly lady that told us many things.
Taking pictures inside the Opera House is limited, especilly no one is allowed to make photographs of the concert hall when there are people on stage. Even then, when it's stagehands that prepare a concert. So I was allowed to make a shot when all workers left the stage for a moment, but of course it was way too dark and with ISO 800 setting the resulting image was noisy and not worth showing.
But in the rest of the building we could take pictures occasionally and so I tried my luck on the steps with that red carpet. The curves/lines and the shadows made it interesting to me. The abstract and minimalistic feel is very nice.
I'm sure you can find such stairways and carpets in any theater building or concert hall all over the world. So next time I have the opportunity I will look for these gems and hopefully there won't be any people walking on it and the light will be good ;-)
