On the last Friday of the Vivid Sydney Festival (12 June 2009), the Husband and I witnessed Sydney come alive with spectacular colours. We specifically watched the LUMINOUS event that featured the Lighting of the Sails.
Vivid Sydney, developed by Events NSW in partnership with the City Of Sydney, was the biggest international music and light festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
It showcased the city as a major creative hub in the Asia-Pacific region, celebrating the diversity of Sydney's creative industries.
Vivid Sydney featured four exciting events:
- Smart Light Sydney
- Creative Sydney
- Fire Water
The Vivid Sydney festival from 26 May-14 June 2009 created irresistible stories through light and sound and brave new ideas; stories that inspire and entertain people, stories which combine to become a unique and powerful expression of 'Creative Sydney'.
This unique new public festival transformed the city into a spectacular living canvas of music and light in and around the Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Circular Quay and the city centre.

One of the things we like to do during night shoots is to play with shutter. This time we had fun capturing moving ferries in Circular Quay during the Vivid Sydney Festival in slow shutter.
