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.
