Happy Birthday Queenie Part II

Vivid 2015

Vivid Sydney was inaugurated in 2009.  Our first visit to Vivid Sydney was in 2013 and our second in 2014.
This year we attended on the penultimate day of the festival and were a bit anxious about re-experiencing a crowd crush.
Well, the crowd crush wasn't quite as bad as what we experienced in 2013, but it was a bit of a turn off and once more cut our night short.
I've probably said it in the past but I'm going to say it again...the best time to go is Monday to Thursday nights.
Weekends just get too busy.
This year, both Mr H.P. and I thought that Vivid was, well, just not as vivid as it has been in the past.

However, there were a few new installations this year and more venues added that were scattered a bit further out from the CBD proper.  Unfortunately we did not get to installations further out but we did manage to see a new work displayed in the Rocks area and involved a projection onto the ceiling of a tunnel (Argyle Cut)in the Rocks.

For a better view, much of the audience lay on the road to view the projection.
Music accompanied the light show.

The whale and its calf would have to be my favourite.

The peacock feathers are not bad either!

And then there was the selfie tunnel!  Ha ha, my first ever selfie. 

This image was projected onto a pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

And of course, what would Sydney Vivid be without the Sydney Opera House.

We originally had walked from Milson's Point, over Sydney Harbour Bridge, to Circular Quay (above).  And Circular Quay is where organisers funneled the crowd to Customs House and after what amounted to around three hours of walking over the afternoon, we decided to call it a day and caught the train back to St Leonards where we had left our car.

Linking to Our World Tuesday


  1. Sydney is such a beautiful city. :)

  2. Wow! I don't like crowds myself, but I'd be willing to go to this event once. It's all amazing in your photos, I can just imagine the Yowza-Wowza to see it up close.
    Take 25 to Hollister

    1. Thanks Su-siee, despite the crowds...it is a 'don't miss' event. This year record crowds visited. Hope you can make it at least once!
