The View from Here

The view from here is colourful and filled with art. The streets take on a celebratory feel, and for three weeks we dash out into the cold night air and explore the town with new vigor.

The view from here is VIVID. Vivid colours, vivid memories. 

I headed into dinner a little early and strolled around Martin Place, then up to Westfield and checked out the ice rink on the top floor of Myer.

I just love that the city gets out in a friendly, neighbourly fashion. 

The view from here is a showcase to the world. It is a delight for families, It is pretty and at times, thought provoking.

The view from here is bright.

The view from here is home.

Linking with #RubyTuesdayToo because of the red waratah. Vivid opens again this Friday


  1. I think I would love to walk those streets :)

  2. I love the views of Vivid!


  3. Oh wow, every year I'm blown away by the images from Vivid. It looks amazing!

  4. I need to get the kids down to Vivid - looks even more amazing each and every year!

  5. We had such a lovely time there too, Lydia. Thanks for showing me a few installations to discover when we return this weekend.

  6. Wowzee! Thanks for sharing. I last visited Vivid in 2013 with my 2nd GD and we did a ferry trip over to Fort Dennison as part of the 'view'. Back then not nearly enough was lit up but I still got lots of enjoyment from it. We also took the lift up to the Cahill Expressway for an overall view. Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 23/52. Next week: Public Holidays.

  7. I've been seeing lots of pictures from Vivid on instagram. It's been great but brought on a bit of homesickness. I love that building turned into a tree!

  8. Lovely colours!!! #mysundayphoto

  9. Where was this taken?
