    So I eventually got around to joining the millions of other people taking photographs of Sydney over the past two weeks of the Vivid Sydney festival. It was an excellent if not a little cool walk across the city and bridge. I have a new appreciation for wearing a scarf now.

    I have around 20 photos on Flickr, and most were taken handheld, except for a few where I had the convenience of a make shift platform or flat surface. I used my E-P5 & ISO's varied from 200 to 3200, mostly 800 & 1600 from memory. ISO 3200 was definitely getting pretty flaky, though ok to look at smaller image sizes. I think with IBIS, I really didn't need to go that high if I stuck with widest aperture.

    I'll add a handful below, though the full set is on Flickr.

    Scarf ! Get yourself a couple of Buff's Darren. Far more versatile & really comfy . And no loose ends to get tangled up in.
    I'm afraid to say I have more than a lot of them. And some as vivid as your pictures !
    Very nice set indeed.

    They look good. Looks like they would be very handy for hiking. I could see myself throwing a normal scarf away in frustration.
