Vivid Sydney


They say you take the things you love for granted. Then something happens to make you see the familiar through new eyes. Sydney Harbour is a magnet for tourists in summer but we needed something to spark up our city in winter and the powers that be came up with the Vivid Sydney Festival click here.

The famous inner city landmarks are lit up with light shows and music. I'd not been to see it. I thought oh yeah, pretty lights ho hum until finally persuaded - with camera and tripod of course - to experience it. Wowee!

The city was fabulous but so crowded so it was onto a ferry to view the other side of the bridge and Luna Park and Opera House from McMahons Point. Spectacular!



















I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my city by night,

Val.

  3. Thanks Rune.
    Patricia - it was almost like New Years Eve meets the Royal Easter Show. The crush of people, fast food vans, people selling glow in the dark sticks, kids everywhere, lots and lots of tourists and a few hardy souls with tripods and cameras ;)
