White Night 2017

Mar 2, 2017 | Melbourne, Public Events

White Night Melbourne was held again in 2017.  The public event took place overnight on Saturday 18th February.  Featuring light and projection displays, musicians, dancers, and other entertainers.  The family friendly event stretched from the National Gallery on St Kilda Road, through the city to the Exhibition Building in the Carlton Gardens.

Once again White Night drew a large crowd into Melbourne, including many photographers.  I was joined this year by my 16 year old niece, photography student, Megan.  By the time we headed home at around 5AM, we had walked many kilometres and taken thousands of photos.

It’s taken me a couple of weeks to go through my White Night photos.  (I know that’s a couple of weeks too long when I’m supposed to be publishing this photography web-site, but it’s better to be late than never getting your work done.)

Below are a few of my favourite pics from the night.  You can check out more White Night photos in the gallery.

UPDATE 20 May 2017

I’ve finally gotten around to editing together the video footage I also took at White Night Melbourne.

Normally Vic Pics is a place for my photography, not video, so this film is on my personal YouTube channel.
