It’s a Vivid Sydney…

by on May.26, 2013, under Life, Photography

Once again the two and a half week festival of light that is Vivid Sydney has hit our wonderful city.

I took my girls into the city last night so they could see some of the opening night’s light display first hand – it was a wet and sometimes rainy evening but the crowds were still out in force.

We spent most of our time down around The Rocks and circular quay area and my girls marvelled at some of the excellent displays of light and magic – some of which were very hands on which the girls really enjoyed.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

A perennial favourite is the large scale light painting of the sails of Sydneys world famous Opera House – this time lit from a new location at Dawes Point
