Arriving at Elizabeth Quay around 6pm it was impossible to miss the main attraction. In the evening sun it was more about size.. you can see the men climbing up one of the legs to the left side, but the giant arachnid was quiet, and then.. the music started, it slowly built up and suddenly a loud blast and fire spurt forth making everyone close by, myself included, jump..
Looking back to the city you can see many spectators lounging around in bean bags.. as the sky darkened the music grew louder..
... and then it was all on, lights flashing, music blaring, flames bursting forth.. quite an astounding sight...
The actual shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, where the quay will be cordoned off for ticket holders, but to be honest I really enjoyed the rehearsal, it had all the pizzazz without the crowds :) The show is called Arcadia.. check out the link and you will see how the giant spider was constructed using recycled scrap metal and the spectacle of the actual show.. incroyable!. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe... P.s. sorry about the overload of shots, I couldn't decide :)
