“This photo was taken at a Sydney Festival ‘pop-up’ bar. It was 7pm and still hitting 40 degrees in the midst of the heat wave that became Sydney’s third hottest day ever, and resistance was futile.
“We sat there dressed to the nines, wilting like week-old flowers and glancing longingly at the cruise ship pictured across the harbour, where tiny people dots were simultaneously enjoying a rooftop waterslide and multi-million dollar views.
“Nevertheless, utilising the menus as fans, sipping out of coconuts and flirting with attentive waiters, life was still pretty good!”
