On Sunday 1 November 2015, Sydney Open threw open the doors to the city’s most treasured and architecturally inspiring buildings.
Thanks for being a part of it.

We’re already preparing for next year’s event with new locations and great new experiences. Mark Sunday 6 November 2016 in your diary.

No. 5 in my top 2015 countdown.

UTS shot during #sydneyisopen, an annual event celebrating Sydney's heritage and contemporary architecture.

More about this series: As a graphic designer my eye is always drawn to strong lines, sharp light, graphic shapes, dramatic shadows, stark contrast, cool patterns, candid moments and striking silhouettes. I prefer to shoot in monochrome. I simply find it easier to capture the essence of a scene in black and white: colour is just a distraction.
---------------------------------------
Thank you @instagram for another great year of photography! And a huge thank you to all my friends and followers for all your support, likes and comments, they are much appreciated indeed!
