Get your Vivid on

Last Festival before Winter in Sydney

At times we like to pretend that it’s always summer in Sydney, but when winter is rolling around, we are lucky to get the bright colourful warm-up of the Vivid Light Festival.

For 18 days, the Opera House sails are dressed in colourful light designs, historic buildings bloom bright flowers and fantasy lands and light art and sculpture pops up in unexpected places. No matter how chilly it gets, when the lights come on at 6pm it is impossible to not smile and enjoy. Hopefully this gallery will make you smile too.

So did you get your Vivid on?

The Unbearable Lightness of Bondi Beach

I know, I know, it’s a very lame pun. But a daily view of Bondi Beach is a marvellous thing to live with. It’s the same view coated in an endless variety of light and colour. So I thought it was time to share a few with you.

For the last two months I’ve been focused on the Rugby World Cup – the rugby and the beer and the flights every weekend and the parties in NZ and all the work in between. So to get myself blogging again, I am literally posting about view out my front door.

From stormy skies to brilliant greens and blues

From grey and silver to pink and orange, the prettiest of palettes

and the moon at all hours of the day and night.
