vivid and canon 2017

On Sunday I joined the Canon Collective for a walking tour of Vivid Sydney (the annual festival of lights)

The walking tour part camera workshop gave a unique perspective of the lights around the harbour -yes they light up the Opera House! on the tour you get to loan a Canon camera (you get to keep the memory card and print some photos)

Heres my favourite shot from the night ( yes a clever double exposure)

Vivid is on until the 17th of June more info on the Canon Collective Walking tours here

paul smith sydney

Iconic English fashion designer Paul Smith has opened in Sydney, I have long been a fan of this brand –  I love his traditional style but always with a twist! and not just for that (famous) pink wall of their Store on Melrose in LA!

my Australia

Recently Condé Nast Traveler declared Australia THE place to travel to in 2016 devoting many of its pages to our sunny shores, we may have known this already but as in all things its always great to be validated! I will share every now and then a few of My Australia (home) favourites right here, these mostly favourite swimming spots below are all walking distance to home, yes we ARE the Lucky Country!
