Hello again fans, Sydney weather is starting to clear up, still cold enough to freeze your lips together, but at least it’s stopped raining for now. L and I went out on a photo shoot during the week around Luna Park after work, a short 15 minute walk from our office, though we still jumped on the train to get more photography time, or maybe we were just lazy. The following are just some of the shots I produced.

This one was L’s idea, spotted while we were walking down towards Luna Park. This is Sydney’s iconic Opera house viewed between the Harbour Bridge pillars.

The iconic Luna Park entrance, such a happy face.

The following are just two different types of shots I took of the Ferris wheel.

Behind Luna park I took a shot across to the residential region of McMahon’s Point. OK, I duplicated some of the stars in case you are a confused astronomer.

As we left Luna Park (because it was surprisingly closed for a conference), I took this shot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

And this shot was taken across to Sydney from under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I hoped you have enjoyed this little journey around Milsons point, and a special thanks to L who gave me a few pointers on night shooting. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello fans, I have selected a few images to share that I took during the Sydney Vivid lights festival. The festival runs  just over two weeks every year brightening up Sydney with an assortment of colors. I never got to get everything on camera that I would have liked to due to the huge crowd and a family that was getting hungry, plus it was really really cold.

The first two below are typical of most Vivid festival shots showing projections onto one of Sydney’s icons, the Opera house.

This shot shows that they light up almost anything that can be lit up, including trees.

The people living here next to the opera house would have seen a lot of colors on a daily basis.

The shot taken next to the Overseas Passenger Terminal alongside Cargo bar, many drinks have been consumed in this bar back in my childless days.

Stalls were opened in the Rocks region during the festival, so many humans.

And finally a shot to show how much of the city is lit up during the festival.

There was a few more things I could have taken pictures of, but like I said the family was getting hungry so we had to exit. Hope you have enjoyed these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.

After my last post “when nature calls”, I shared a picture of that spider that may bite me in the near future and turn me into Spider man, but until that day you see me wearing a Lycra bodysuit, I would like to share a picture of the Opera house I took from the bridge that day for our international visitors alongside some statistical information. In my opinion, I also think it is the best city in Australia to live in and I’m sure some may disagree, particularly those creatures from Melbourne (*insert evil laugh here*).
