A Sydney Christmas - Twelfth Day

Holograms displayed on the facade of the NSW Conservatorium of Music
Carol of the Birds (Verse 1 of 3)
Out on the plains the brolgas are dancing,
Lifting their feet like war horses prancing,
Up to the sun the woodlarks go winging,
Faint in the dawn light echoes they're singing,
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

How clever to use Holograms and leave the building alone. I love how the texture of the building changes with each hologram. Both images are lovely, but the first one reminds me of a castle one would find in a fairy tale.

Those Holograms are awesome! Are you sure that's not Windsor Castle??

Wow, the first photo had me looking back two or three times!

That's incredible! What a creative way to celebrate a building and make it fresh every day.

I came in to do some moderating, glancing down, I then noticed the first few lines..this is so neat! Charming and fresh!

I love the holograms, they are awesome both awesome images. It is a neat way to decorate.

I did think the first one was painted, which lead me to ponder what the painter/designer had ingested! That's a pretty neat effect though - would look great on buildings here like the Tower of London.

I like the second one .. the first one doesn't do anything for me .... either way great shots. I tried doing them a few years ago and got nothing but blurs ... I guess I really needed a tripod.

These are amazing, Julie. You've done an excellent job of capturing and sharing them with those of us who can't see the holograms in person.

Icy BC said...

These are beautiful photos, Julie! So colorful in the first picture, and the second is out of this world!

Ann said...

going to be interesting to compare your shots with mine. I especially want to see how you captured the Town Hall & St James (which I didn't get at all).

I love how the building looks in each scene. Very cool.

Looking at your photography felt like entering a fairy-tale tonight. Thank you.

Please have a nice start into the new week.

Marka said...

That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

Now there is an environmentally friendly way to light up a building. I assume the projection goes through a number of changes before repeating. A terrific idea. We had the grand kids over today to help decorate and they put some lights on the shrubery in front of the house. I will have to take some pictures.

These turned out fantastic Julie. I've taken a few pix around Macquarie Street but I don't think they'll look anywhere near as good as these.

I'm all for utilising buildings in this way. Looks great.

Thanks for stopping by my place!

Clever way to paint a castle!

Something is sort of unnerving about those holigrams - fist they look real (especially the ivy) but then.. wait, no...

Now, you give me an idea! Being in the west and not watching tv and reading news this is what i have missed!

Holograms displayed - so no paint, MB
