Sometimes with my 30 minutes in the life sessions I have a plan. Sometimes it happens before me and I go with it. Sometimes it is a combination; I have a plan but it changes, and I go with it. This is what happened early in June. We went in to the city for the Vivid Light Show. It is a beautiful way to showcase Sydney and the Opera House at night-time. I had visions of my 30 minutes including the lights, and my family exploring the city.
We rugged up in jackets, and loaded everyone in the car. We arrived a little before sunset, and decided to walk around the harbour until it was dark. We walked down to Dawes Point. I love this spot. I have captured a 30 minutes session here before. I love the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, and the water. I love the boats, the skyline, and the fact that I am a tourist. As we sat looking at the view, the kids noticed the food vans. They decided they were hungry for dinner, even though it was early. We decided it was a great idea, and ran with it. They ordered noodles, and we sat down on a brick wall. Then my plan for my 30 minutes changed. I could not resist capturing this moment. This is the best view in the world. The sun was setting, and the colours in the sky were brilliant. As we finished our noodles, we continued our walk. The sky was vivid, and I realized that though I had planned on capturing a light show, natures version was way better.
