Sydney Festival

I had a rather quick trip to Sydney in January. Quick, but still fun. Sydney Festival runs every January, we had time for a little look around Festival Village in Hyde Park.

 There was a great library. Free books to go.  I liberated five....

You could bring books in from home to donate.
Many were surplus from the City of Sydney Library. 

 Higher Ground is said to be part art installation, part photo playground.

It does make for some cool photos

But as an experience in the HOT sun of an Australian Summer
It was HOT.

Baking really. 

Staff retreated under umbrellas. 

We retreated for an ice-cream. 

Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly meme

We missed all the festival events this year with one thing and another, so it has been lovely catching your pics of it :-)

I did see the art installation and wondered what it looked like from inside.

This looks like a fun day-it does look hot in those photos.

Very colourful post. It seems everywhere you go you see art. Higher Ground is most interesting.

Looks like a fun festival. Although the colors of "Higher Ground" are vivid and beautiful, I can see how all that concrete would be really hot!
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

What a fun festival. I love the geometry in the play area.

Love the idea of giving away old books from the library. All of us librarians need to do this now and then.
