Vivid Sydney 2011

Ominous rain men

On Saturday evening we rugged up and headed into the city for the annual light, music and ideas festival known as Vivid Sydney.

Lights on the ceiling

The historic Rocks area and Circular Quay are swathed in light. The surrounding highrise buildings have coloured lights projected on to them and the Sydney Opera House is aglow with a magnificent light show projected on to those iconic sails.

The building that we loved the most this year was the Customs House which constantly changed and at one stage looked like it was crumbling to the ground. All done with lights! Amazing.

Customs House feeling rather blue

As my daughter said, “They took a very ordinary building and turned it into something spectacular.”

I had fun making my first movie and uploading it to You Tube. Click on the Customs House photo to have a look.

Vivid Sydney is on until 13 June.
