Sydney Rocks at VIVID

Do you get the scale of it? Boomtish!

VIVID's 10th birdthday


It's pretty obvious that I love Sydney and I am mad for VIVID, tearing all over the city at night lured by the lights. I am amazed at the negative press. We hit the Rocks on Tuesday and I expected to crowds to be overwhelming given the media, only to be met with none. Near empty streets, ease of view at the railings, no queues for food or drinks. I have no idea what everyone is talking about?!


So ignore the complaints and see for yourself.














 There is beauty in the darkness, awash with colour, the city dazzles.


In the laneways at the Rocks there were barely any people at all!


No people at all outside the MCA
Crowds? What crowds?

  1. Alas, Sydney is about 10,000 miles away but if I could get there, I would simply have to take similar images. Looks great and whatever the negative press is, keep ignoring it! Headed over from #mysundayphoto

  2. Ah Sydney. We are turning into world-class whingers! I can't believe all the negativity that I have been hearing around Vivid. It has been a few years since I last went, but I loved every minute of it. Will definitely be heading back in when my little one is old enough to appreciate it (if all the whingers haven't had it cancelled by then).
    Love the photos, looks fantastic! #GlobalBlogging

  7. I love coloured lights at night. We have a lot around our float cabin home. They are especially cheerful during the long dark nights in winter. - Margy

  18. Visited Australia in 2012 as we have family in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Visited the Opera House and took the ferry out into the harbour which gave us amazing views of the Harbour bridge and the Opera House #globalblogging
