State Library, Macquarie Night Lights

The State Library of New South Wales featured Christmas Projections on the Macquarie Street facade of the Mitchell Wing. This is my final look at this year's Macquarie Night Lights. A daytime view of the Mitchell Wing of the library, viewed from Shakespeare Place, can be seen here.

  2. Looks as tho I certainly must visit Sydney to see this enlarged show after last year. Was surprised to see the changes at QVB, I loved using my camera there. There are not many Australian CDP blogs really, as far as a range of localities goes as from your list.

  3. Yes Julia, there don't seem to be a lot of City Daily Photo blogs for Australia. A few of them start enthusiastically but then drop off after a while.

  4. Wow you did a fantastic job of cataloging the light displays. I haven't been down there at night so missed that aspect of the festivities. It sure makes as difference.

  9. Great series of shots of the lights! Painting with light is a fascinating art. And your 12 days of Christmas are indeed different from the normal "gifts".

  11. Good display, Jim. However, what is with the AB and the portrait of George V? I don't recalll that one at all.

  13. Julie, it has something to do with the Mitchell Library celebrating its Centenary in 2010. George V as monarch of Australia in 1910 was just one of the images from that time. Not sure about the AB.

  16. The one with the text: it looks like the text were stuck on! Amazing!

  17. There seems to be no end to the ideas for light shows. The alphabet on the Library works well.
    We have a CDP blog on Brisbane but it doesn't attract much interest through the CDP site.

    Cheers for the New Year!

  26. Julie, the letters projected on the Mitchell Library are part of an alphabet that was created to celebrate the Library's centenary

    You can see more about it here:
