Saturday Photo Hunt --- Triangle







TRIANGLE



What can be more triangular than sails and while Sydney Opera House does not have "perfect" triangular sails, as an architectural wonder it is almost perfection and one of the best known buildings in the world.

Triangles like the sails on this boat could well have been the inspiration for Jorn Utzon, Danish architect who won the international design competition for the building.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE
AND HAPPY EASTER TO THOSE
WHO CELEBRATE IT

Hi jmb --

Funny -- but actually was thinking of putting up a picture of a sailboat for this week's Triangle entry. Ended up opting for some different triangle shaped objects though... ;)

Re the Sydney Opera House: It looks so great in photos. Does it live up to expectations when you see it in the flesh? Hope so! :)
