Last night R and I drove into the city to check out Vivid Sydney- "a festival of light, music and ideas" for you non-Sydneysiders. (Check it out HERE.)

We visited most of the light installations/sculptures and projections on show around Circular Quay and the Rocks. Because a lot of the installations were interactive, the atmosphere was very lively! Unfortunately we didn't get to check out FireDance and the night markets due to the sporadic but torrential rain and wind. The former of which also snapped all of the spokes of R's umbrella. R.I.P.

But anyway, I took some photos (and a video which I may post up later) so here are a few of them...

And of course one of R. There are a couple of other photos which aren't completely relevant to Vivid so I didn't post them here since this is picture heavy as is. But maybe next post? Also have some rant-filled 'stories' (ok, just a rant) to tell...

But other than that, we had a lovely night- some of the exhibits were amazing. Especially the hippy opera house ;) I highly recommend you check out the website because there are some really stunning photos on there!

Thank you R for taking me out :)

  1. It looks bloody amazing! I completely missed out this year. My boyfriend, who also goes by the initial R (HAHA!) is currently in Adelaide!

    Oh sigh, but your photos were definitely amazing enough to make up for it. :)

  2. Oh, wow! Thanks for visiting that post, because I have to say, that brightened my day, too - being able to read that again. Glad you found something worth reading, lovely! I'm reading The Hobbit as we speak, actually. So fantastic. I think i actually prefer it to LOTR, it's more quaint.

    i went to one before and had a good time taking photos with the stationary exhibits and the performing artists!

    The rain is a bit of a dampener today, but hope you are enjoying yourself nonetheless. :)
