White Night, Melbourne

It’s been months since I woke up so early to see the sunrise.

White Night Melbourne at 5am was devoid of the usual jam-packed crowd. The balmy summer’s night carried an air of mystery and ethereal quality with the many artistic displays and installations. Occasionally we would lie on the grass or beanbags, watching trippy light projections dance across building and lose ourselves to the surrounds and haunting music.

But my favorite part was the sunrise. It never ceases to inspire me, the ever changing colors of the sky, as the sun’s rays peek through the horizon, ushering away the night and awakening this beautiful city with its warming light.
