Sydney was more than alive during the Vivid, a month when the whole city is lit up with lights, shows and food trucks everywhere. I stumbled upon this gelato truck and loved the colors and the retro design it featured so I sat down for a quick shot. I only had time for one shot and miraculously that one shot came out clean. I was lucky enough that the crowd walked behind me and all the workers were either behind or inside the van, one even blurred by the delayed exposure.. It’s not everyday you get luck like this in photography, it’s not everyday you get the cream of your dreams.

Originally I went to the main hall of the Austrian National Library to attend a guided tour of the freemasonry exhibition. I was delighted by the architecture and soon fell for all the secret doors which were open - what a sign when having an exhibition on freemasons :-)
