It was unusual for me to be home early from work on Friday and decided to dine out early about 6pm breaking my tradition of 9-10pm dinner time. It is not a norm for me to have my dinner early. I usually have meals very late at night and at odd times which I am accustomed to. It was warm September evening and I could feel the warm breeze flooding the whole entire surroundings which made it uneasy for me to relax. I decided to have a swim in the pool to cool off before I could get relaxed and watch a DVD titled “The Help” that I recently bought. I watched this DVD before on an on-flight entertainment with American Airlines from Dallas to London. It was a very good movie and I promised to myself that when I get back home to Cairns, I was going to purchase one of this DVD for my collection. The movie is based on a true story about the treatment of coloured people in America – mainly on racial and segregation and funny at times. It is a very touching and emotional movie. I must admit, I couldn’t stop crying and I still do whenever I watch this DVD.
With this feeling of uncomfortable breeze around me and my dog Mindi panting and jumping on me to catch her attention, I changed my mind on watching this movie. So I decided to pack up camera and took Mindi on a night out to this beautiful city where I live. I thought to myself, I am going to have a #Tour-of-Cairns-by-Night# – Self-Drive tour. It was a brilliant idea and a great opportunity for me to take some night scene photography which I ever done before.
