My travelling can take you from Auchenflower to suburbs of Brisbane,parts of Australia or different countries of the world - hope you enjoy the trip!
It's Divali! Also known as Deepavali as per the second picture. It is the Hindu festival of lights.I was in India for Divali a few years back. It is a big deal! Lots of fireworks, houses lit up with lamps, and decorated with the coloured pictures as in your photos, and lots of sweets consumed.
Thanks, Veriya, knew someone would know. I'm not always as observant as I should be. The colours are so vibrant.
