SU­PER­STAR swim­mer Bronte Camp­bell has a spe­cial con­nec­tion with one of our most iconic lo­ca­tions. Not only does she share a name with Bronte Beach, she also hap­pens to love hang­ing out on its golden sands. The Olympian and her sis­ter, Cate, who were born in Malawi, Africa and later lived with their fam­ily in Bris­bane, nom­i­nated tak­ing a swim in our world-fa­mous ocean beaches as the best thing about Sydney life in a show of sup­port for 2016’s #Snap­Syd­ney cam­paign. “It’s the City of Beaches ... head to Bronte which was named af­ter me!” she joked. “Head down to Bondi, head down to Bronte ... hang out in the sun and have a good time.”

#Snap­Syd­ney is aimed at bring­ing communities to­gether.

Over 24 hours on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 16 we’re invit­ing you to pho­to­graph pictures cel­e­brat­ing Sydney life, and shar­ing them with the hash­tag #Snap­Syd­ney.

Last year, the #Snap­Syd­ney re­sponse was stag­ger­ing, with more than 11,000 pictures posted.

Am­a­teurs joined more than 100 pro­fes­sion­als to shoot their lo­cal area and stun­ning land­marks from the sea, land and air.

This year, for the first time, #Snap­Syd­ney and #SnapCoast are go­ing na­tional with events held in cap­i­tal cities around the coun­try.

In the lead-up to the big day, read­ers have been in­vited to show us their snaps.

This week, we want to see your favourite morn­ing mo­ment. Shoot your favourite place for break­fast or the best cof­fee on your block.

Stand up comic, TV and ra­dio star Dave Hughes re­vealed his favourite way to start a Sydney day.

“At The Pantry Manly, cos you can see and smell the ocean and the food and cof­fee is spot on,” he said.

“I’m an eggs on toast dude with lots of sides!”

Al­though he hails from Melbourne, Hughes con­fessed Sydney “has nat­u­ral scenery that Melbourne can’t com­pete with”.

“I’ve flown in at least a thou­sand times and mar­velled at ... how bloody pretty it is,” he said.
