Light projections l.....


Most people who know me know that St. George's Terrace is my favourite part of the city, the mix of skyscrapers, heritage buildings and eclectic sculptures is photographic nirvana :) As part of the Perth Winter Festival and thanks to Sydney company The Electric Canvas the heritage buildings along the terrace come alive every night until 28th July with ever changing light projections. Above, the sedate facade of Newspaper House changes from a 'tree eating monster'..to psychedelically yarn bombed, it was chilly last night but the last shot was the only sign of ice in the city :) Show you more tomorrow. It's been horribly hectic around here the last few days, hope to catch up today, happy weekend, take care.....

    We get something similar during the summer on our Parliament Buildings, but not a monster!

  11. What clever creativity Grace!
    (It was during CHOGM 2011) I adored Perth so much I would move there in a heartbeat if it weren't for my girls and the grandie!

  12. They certainly can transform a building with lights. Not sure if I like it or not.

  13. As you may remember we have them here too, but it is very hard to compete with the blank canvas of the sails of Sydney Opera House. Newspaper House is a very nice building.

  18. This is so fantastic. I so wish our city would do this. I even put a suggestion in several weeks ago. I think it would be an amazing event.
