Paul says…

There’s always a balance between taking time out to explore a new city (and relaxing), while making sure you don’t miss anything special with your camera. Being in Sydney over Chinese New Year was a little strange – especially as I’d come from Shanghai. It had all the signs up for “processions” and an afternoon of celebrations, but none of the chaos and craziness of actually being in mainland China for the week either side.

I’d finished shooting for the day, and it was time for a well-deserved glass of wine at the top of our hotel. As we settled in, the city lights began to switch on and there was something strange about the Sydney Opera House tonight: They’d turned it red!

Here’s the dilemma: Do you say “nah, leave it”? (Having already shot the same icon at sunrise that morning). Or do you put the wine on ice, rush downstairs to get your full camera kit and run across the harbour to capture a few frames of something different?

You can guess which option I took; a true “encore” by the Opera House itself.
