Blog PostTitle: Little India: A Festival of Lights Through the Lens of a Cairns Photographer #michaelpetersenphotography


Greetings, fellow travel enthusiasts and photography aficionados! I'm Michael Petersen, an Australian professional photographer based in the picturesque landscapes of North Queensland. While my primary focus is capturing the beauty of Cairns, Mareeba, and the Atherton Tablelands, my passion for travel and street photography has taken me to incredible places. In this blog post, I want to share with you a truly enchanting experience - my journey into the heart of Little India during the festival of lights.

Discovering Little India:

As a Cairns photographer with a keen eye for vibrant cultures and unique traditions, I couldn't resist the allure of Little India. Tucked away in the heart of bustling cities, Little India is a tapestry of colors, aromas, and traditions that transport you to a different world. My lens is always ready to capture the essence of these cultural gems, and the festival of lights presented the perfect opportunity.

The Festival of Lights:

The festival of lights, known as Diwali, is a celebration of joy, light, and the triumph of good over evil. Little India, with its narrow streets adorned with intricate decorations and vibrant hues, becomes a canvas of visual delights during this auspicious time. As a travel photographer, I am constantly seeking moments that encapsulate the spirit of a place, and Diwali in Little India provided an abundance of such opportunities.

Navigating the Streets:

Venturing through the lively streets of Little India, I found myself immersed in a sea of people adorned in traditional attire. The air was filled with the scent of delicious Indian cuisine, and the sounds of joyous celebrations echoed through the narrow alleys. My Mareeba photography roots may be in landscapes, but the vibrant street life of Little India beckoned my lens to capture the human stories unfolding against the backdrop of colorful decorations.#travelphotography

Photographing the Colorfully Special:

The festival of lights is a visual spectacle, and as a photographer, I felt like a child in a candy store. From the radiant glow of oil lamps to the kaleidoscope of colors emanating from intricate rangoli designs, every corner offered a new and mesmerizing shot. Candid moments of families lighting diyas, children playing with sparklers, and the grandeur of the light displays became precious snapshots frozen in time.

Bringing Little India to Cairns:

While my roots as a Cairns photographer are firmly planted in the natural beauty of Far North Queensland, my travels and experiences in places like Little India enrich my artistic perspective. The vibrant and diverse culture of Little India has left an indelible mark on my photography, and I am eager to share this visual journey with my Cairns and Mareeba clientele.


As a professional photographer with a passion for travel and street photography, exploring Little India during the festival of lights was a sensory feast for my lens. The kaleidoscope of colors, the warmth of the people, and the traditions of Diwali created a visual symphony that will forever be etched in my memory. My journey from Cairns to Little India is a testament to the power of photography to transcend geographical boundaries and capture the universal beauty of diverse cultures.So, until my next adventure unfolds through the lens, keep chasing the light and exploring the world one photograph at a time. #cairnsphotographer
