Food at the Sydney Opera House

At Vivid again, for dessert I tried a jaffle at this charming Kombi van parked in the forecourt. I had the Choc a doodle doo but was tempted by the David Jafflehoff.

The Great Gatsby in Sydney

On the Saturday night of the Vivid festival at the front of the Opera House was this ritzy Great Gatsby party. Uninvited I was tempted to crash it, sadly my dress may have given me away.

Food Vans Sydney

This beaut was under the Opera House which no one seemed to discover, (luckily I had installed the Sydney Food Vans app on my smartphone). Had a tasty Waygu nachos with chilli sauce under the sails watching the show.

Vivid Sydney 2013

Yep time to head down to Sydney Harbour for the festival that photographers love. It was a cool night but thankfully clear, no wind and a full moon. Love the mobile food vans and the free ferry shuttle around the harbour. Had a hot chocolate to start the night and then the light show began ...
