Not the opera house

Everyone has seen photos of the Sydney Opera House standing proud on its peninsula jutting into the harbour. What you never see is the sandstone cliff that faces the Opera House across the plaza in front of it. It's amazing how much vegetation has found a foothold in the crevices of the sandstone, in particular this small Moreton Bay Fig sapling, looking rather like a slender woman sitting with her legs decorously crossed at the ankles.
