Just You, Me, and the Pretty Lights

… And a few thousand other people checking out Vivid last weekend.

So recently Sydney came to life. With lights. With amazing lights.
Projections of colour and images on iconic structures around the city.
Quirky installations along the walk from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour.
And a few fireworks to keep the little kids (and the big kids) happy.

Having heard good reports about it from friends, I rugged up last Sunday night and met up with the Guy to check it all out.

We went the reverse path, starting at Darling Harbour and finishing at the Sydney Opera House.

I didn’t take heaps of snaps coz, y’know, fungi and beaches are more my thing. But it was hard not to be taken with the beauty of it all…

Not a lot of firework pics coz we were perched on a pot plant (best place for shorties like us!) and I wasn’t too keen on falling off. Plus I wanted to enjoy the show.

Clearly my fave sights were the Harbour Bridge (managed a snap of the Guy taking a snap of the Bridge too, haha) and the Museum of Contemporary Art, which had the best projection sequence to music. Watched it 3 times to capture my favourite bits.

All in all, a great night’s wandering. (Without losing each other in the crowd too. Well, not for very long, at least!)

Hats off to all the amazing artists, designers, and people who made it happen. Thanks for the inspirations!

That’s all for now, from your friendly, neighbourhood Strey Creative πŸ™‚

    These are awesome! It’s a great idea for an event too… Does it happen every year?

      I think so – and it keeps getting bigger and better, from what I hear! Started a few years ago but this is the first one I’ve been to. And it’s all free which is even better πŸ˜€ haha
