Cairns Central, Queensland

Whilst in Cairns the second week of our winter holiday last year my mobile phone decided to give up the ghost.  I went and got a new one, Samsung Galaxy Edge 7.... these photos were the first ones I took with the camera in the phone.


One of the main shopping complexes in Cairns City.
Cairns Central.
Parking wasn't a problem, there is our vehicle the black one.

  1. G'day! Popped over from Sandra's Blog. Your phone camera takes great pictures. Beautiful mall and not crowded. Either everyone spent their money on Christmas gifts or it's a beautiful day and everyone is at the beach. Oo Roo!

      It was winter time when I took the photos...last year, southern winter in the tropics.

  10. Ha, cameras are topical today. Many years ago when I bought perhaps my second mobile phone, I asked the salesperson a question about the camera. He replied, if you are concerned about a camera, you better buy one and not a mobile phone. Now, hmmm, your photos are damned good and I am not sure buying a point and shoot camera is very wise now.

    1. The phone cameras a getting better and I can see the time when point and shoot cameras won't necessarily be needed.

  14. I think that's the brand that has had a huge recall over here. Something about them exploding or smoking when charging. Quite dangerous.

    1. That is the Galaxy Note 7, they have recalled all of them, and I think you can't buy them anymore.. so a different phone from mine.

  16. That's a great looking shopping centre. I've heard the Galaxy 7's are banned from planes because of the catching fire thing. Good thing you're driving home :)

    1. Thanks, the phone photos surprised me, didn't think they could be so good. Some things taken with it are not real good, just a snap is ok.
