Today is Australia Day. Despite the heavy rain this morning I went down to the harbour to see some of the events. The highlight of the day (for the second year in a row) was the display by the Australian Defence Forces.Read more
Last night I went to Symphony in the Domain with a group of friends from uni.
The quality of the concert was exceptional. There were a number of violin and saxophone solos and the orchestra overall sounded superb.
Most of the music performed was not very well known. But the rendition of The Blue Danube Waltz was brilliant, and the traditional final piece Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture rounded out a very good evening.
Below is a video of the last three minutes of the 1812 Overture with the full fireworks and cannon display.
I spent New Year’s Eve with a group of friends at Barangaroo on Sydney Harbour. As we waited for midnight we ate, chatted, danced, and had a great time ending one year and bringing in the next.
The video below shows the countdown to midnight, and still photos show the rest of the evening.Read more
These are photos from around the track at the V8 Supercars Sydney event last weekend.Read more
Yesterday I went to the V8 Supercars at Olympic Park. It was a great day out, with over 10 hours of racing amongst a variety of classes, and to top things off Holden one in the main game.
Below are the best of my photos of the various racing classes. I will do a second post with photos from the motorshow and other general shots.Read more
This morning I walked along the coast from Coogee to Bondi to check out Sculpture by the Sea. My idea was to do the walk early enough in the day to avoid the big crowds – as it turned out lots of other people had exactly the same idea!
However, as the photos attest, today was one of those moments when I love living in Sydney. The weather was perfect – not too hot, not too cold, and people were out and about smiling and enjoying the day.
These photos only represent a very small section of the artwork on display. In total there are over 100 exhibits and despite taking 250+ photos I still missed a lot of things.
An added bonus to my walk was seeing a Blue Tongue Lizard for the first time in the wild. I would have expected it to be hiding from all the noise but it seemed content enough to stick around and pose for me.Read more
I’ve just got home from spending the day at the NRL Grand Final. What an awesome day despite the Warriors losing the NRL Grand Final. This was the biggest sporting event I had been to – 81,988 people in the crowd.
Tonight a group of friends from uni and I went to Vivid Sydney and had a fantastic time. Vivid Sydney is on every night for the next week and a bit at Circular Quay and The Rocks and it is well worthwhile checking out. But don’t take my words for it, instead let my photos below convince you.Read more
I can’t hear anything, I can say anything cause I screamed so much, and I smell really bad after too much mosh pit. But Skillet are awesome!Read more
Embarrassing as it is, last night was the first time in two years I have been out on New Year’s Eve. However, if you live in Sydney you simply cannot miss the best fireworks display in the world.Read more
