Vivid Sydney 2014 Review

VividSydney2014-12Vivid Sydney, what a magical time of year. Art is out and about, lights are mesmerising and love is in the air. So I read somewhere that on average around 800,000 attend Vivid Sydney and produces around 20 million dollars in commerce. Amazing right?

So over the weekend I attended my friends wedding reception that happened to be right on the harbour so I managed to get a couple of good snaps.

People were obviously going crazy for Vivid as during the peak period at around 7pm, they actually had to close all trains to Circular Quay, so walk from Wynyard we must. It was an eerie/exciting walk and kinda felt like there was going to be a amazing festival or the beginnings of a zombie apocalypse….
