Fireworks over the Sydney Opera House

After sleeping a solid 9 hours on Monday night, I felt recharged enough to assemble my tripod and head out for a walk after work on Tuesday. What I had intended to only be a short 1-2 hour walk ended up lasting for 5+ hours as I walked along the ferry piers, across the Harbour Bridge (and back again), before finally heading back to the hotel around 11PM.

Halfway across the Harbour Bridge, it suddenly started to sprinkle and while I was staying huddled under the lookout point with a few other strangers, fireworks started going off on the side of the bridge! Due to the wind and rain it was quite hard to grab good photos, and honestly most of them didn't turn out well at all.

This was one of the only decent firework shots of that night, and I figured it was good enough for the day's #creative366project entry.

Need to crash as I feel a bit of a tickle in my throat and hope to avoid coming down with anything serious.

Goodnight from Tokyo!

    Thank you +Ursula Rodgers ! It's funny – I wasn't too fond of the trails initially, but after reading that you liked it, I find myself not minding them too much anymore (^^)
