The Vivid Sydney light festival is a firm yearly tradition for me now. Luckily, my rural placement ended just before the last weekend of Vivid, so after 8 hours of driving back down here on Friday, I jumped straight on the train into the city (knowing full well that it was going to be horrendously crowded).
Customs House, which was a cute narrative-ish projection this year (with very Harry Potter sounding soundtrack).
The, MCA which I always find hard to photograph nicely.
I liked how they worked with the details of the facade.
Tunnel with animal scenes being projected and narration by David Attenborough.
This was an awesome tent thing with a mirrored ceiling and projections on the walls.
I wasn't really into the Opera House this year. I like it when they integrate the sails more.
This was inside a shipping container, with mirrored walls and lights that changed colours.
This was fancy, the light sticks made up different words which you could make out as you walked around it.
Am I glad to be back in Sydney! Not to knock the town where I was - everyone there was lovely and it was a great experience - but I'm a city girl at heart. It's the energy of a big city that recharges me. I need a place with lights and crowds and tall buildings and noisy traffic and diversity, where I can be anonymous and yet not feel lonely. I'm never going to complain about this city again, I swear!
