Based in Perth, Western Australia, I enjoy writing about and photographing events and places of interest whenever I get the chance.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the most iconic buildings in the world and was granted UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2007.
It was built in three stages between 1958 and 1973 which is when it was officially opened. One of the interlocking shells which create the distinctive roof of the structure is shown here, with workmen inspecting the glazed ceramic tiles which cover the entire surface.
It really is a 'tough day at the office' for these workers who also get to enjoy a commanding view of Sydney's CBD.
