David Moore loved photographing the Opera House, because it looked great from any angle. In most cases, the photographer must carefully select the precise angle of light and camera position to show architecture to best advantage. Choices tend to be limited because it's rare to find a modern building rich in possibilities. The Sydney Opera House is a happy exception.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
