Sydney Aroma Festival, largely reputable for the numerous brands of coffee showcased , hence the name aroma. It is held annually in The Rocks right next to the Sydney Harbour. It attracts a significant sized crowd every year as one would imagine due to the popularity of coffee in Australia. Coffee is the main attraction, but it also boasts a huge variety of food and beverage stores to perfectly match your cup of coffee. We arrived there early in the day, ready for some coffee loving. Beautiful overcast day perfect for photography, having been trapped in my dry cabinet for a while, I decided to grab my A850 with a 50mm 1.4 for the day for some full frame goodness. We grabbed some waffles with chocolate sauce for breakfast, very tasty with the slightest hint of crunch on each bite, fluffy and full of flavour inside. Browsing through the stalls one by one we started from the Circular Quay train station and went all the way to the tip of The Rocks under the Harbour Bridge. The scene was amazing, jazz in the air, celebrity chef from Ready Steady Cook Damien Heads on the barbie, persistent aroma of coffee in the air, camera in hand, what more could I ask for.
