Sydney 2011: Vivid Sydney

May/June 2011

Sydney is one of the places I visit yearly in Australia. It's only an hour and a half away and there are some things there that we just can't get here in Melbourne.
Usually, we go to Sydney for their food but this time around, Vivid Sydney was going on so we decided to drop by and see what it's all about.

Vivid Sydney is basically a light show which happens yearly in Sydney. The whole of Sydney City Centre will be beautifully lit up. There were also awesome high tech interactive light projections that you can play with.

I laugh every time I see this picture:
 It seems like we were two BFFs,holding each other's hands tightly, who hasn't seen each other for the longest time. That poor girl was trying to balance herself on those sticks so that I can capture a shot. :(

Super big "laser pencil":

For you to "write" on the wall of Sydney's building:

The highlight of Vivid Sydney was the lit up Opera House.
It was so beautiful!
I didn't have a DSLR with me that night and my Canon G11 wasn't the best camera to use to capture night shots. I felt so inferior next to all the pro photographers with their DSLR, huge lenses, a full stand and the whole shebang.

Nonetheless I did manage to capture some decent shots to share it here:
I was trying to be artistic.

I also made a gif of the flying jellyfish on the Opera House:

Besides light projection, there was a night market as well. You can find all sorts of food, arts and crafts at the market. 

Greek pancakes. Oh so good! :
