It’s that time of year where Sydney’s festival of lights “Vivid” is on and your social media accounts are overflowing with images from around Sydney. With that in mind I thought I would spare you another image of the light show and instead bring you one of the images I took from my recent visit before the sun went over the horizon and the lights were switched on. I might share some of the festival later, however I specifically went along to vivid this year to see if I could move away from the norm and capture the city during this time from another angle.
Before the sun set, I headed up from the botanical gardens to take some bridge shots against the fading light but couldn’t resist taking some of the building itself. At this time of day the concrete flooring starts to reflect the light and give a glass like quality which during the mid-day sun or evening looks more like a building sites floor (if I’m honest). I’m not sure if I was being mistaken for someone else however it was here a Chinese man on holiday approached me and my friend and asked for a picture. I agree’d thinking he meant of him against the Opera house however his daughter popped up and he insisted of a picture of him with me and my friend. So answers on a postcard of who he thinks we are as I have no clue!
Although this is the last weekend for Vivid this year there is an excellent article over at Photographyhotspots.com.au giving you some killer tips how to beat the crowds next year (amongst a whole heap of other good stuff), so head on over and check it out. http://photographyhotspots.com.au/5-tips-to-beat-the-crowds-during-vivid-sydney/
