Join us in celebrating our wonderful city one picture at a time
WHEN Montana Rubin goes to work, she gets to drink in the best view in the world.
Few places can match the beauty of Sydney Harbour with its coathanger bridge and the blinding white sails of the Opera House where Rubin will perform next month in the Australian Ballet’s production of Coppelia.
It is a ballet about a young man’s infatuation with a beautiful doll — a theme that seems perfectly apt for such a photogenic venue.
“I love Sydney for its beauty,” says Rubin, a Sydneysi- der who has posed for this year’s #SnapSydney community celebration.
The elegant corp de ballet dancer takes none of it for granted and says the Botanic Gardens and the area around the Opera House are the perfect place to spend her “downtime” when not rehearsing and performing.
Wednesday, November 16, is dedicated to celebrating what you love about Sydney.
For 24 hours, we will be inviting you to snap pictures of Sydney life and share them with your fellow Sydneysiders on social media, with the hashtag #SnapSydney.
Our aim is to build a living gallery of a day in the life of Sydney and there will be plenty to do in the CBD. Martin Place will host a #SnapSydney pop-up event, with entertainment, a digital gallery, and a first time ‘pay with a snap’ food deal.
Popular food trucks Camanito and De Wafel will serve up chorizo rolls and liege waffles with ice cream and Belgian chocolate sauce and everyone’s favourite, Mr Whippy, will be providing soft serve cones.
To get your free food item at Martin Place, while stocks last, simply share a snap of Sydney on social media with the hashtag #SnapSydney.
No matter where you are, taking part is simple: Snap a picture that shows us your take on your city, suburb or street on November 16.
Hashtag it #SnapSydney, then post it to Instagram @snapsydney, Twitter @snapsydney, or Facebook (@ your local paper, and make sure your pictures are public).
Don’t forget: Snap. Hashtag. Share.
Coppelia opens at the Opera House on Friday, December 2.
