Circular Quay, Vivid Sydney, bench

This artwork was installed on the Circular Quay foreshore, as part of the Vivid Sydney festival. "C/C" is a futuristic and functional sculpture created by Singapore's Angela Chong. It is made from acrylic sheets fashioned into a public bench, illuminated by night with low energy, colour changing LED lights. The shots from the front have the Sydney Opera House as a backdrop, while those from behind look out towards Circular Quay and the city skyline. I featured a daytime shot of this artwork here.


  1. I feel like I have been to Sydney and seen the highlights of the city--thanks for all your great pics. Have a nice weekend. Mickie :)

  2. Great pictures here J. I love seeing the city on one of the shots and the Opera house in the other.

  3. Amazing Shots! I'm inspired to catch some of the night lights of my own city.

  4. Oh my! Excellent capture. Looks like something from outer space. Great colors.
    Have a happy day!

  5. The city feels to be filled with countless impressive ideas - what a nice place it must be.

  7. Great colours Jim - I would have to say the top pic in that vivid pink is my favourite.

  8. Your night shots always amaze me: so crisp and clear!


    The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
    Enjoyed by both peasant and king;
    No matter the eye
    That sees the bright sky
    The proper response is to sing!

  11. Kim, yes I usually use a tripod for these types of night shots because the shutter stays open longer and there would be too much shaking to capture a clear shot otherwise.

  12. I love outdoor art installations & this one is no exception. Very cool.
