Arriving in a city at night is a unique experience, and can fill you with excitement or dread.
Bus stops are always inconveniently located in the seediest parts of town and if you are a backpacker you find yourself walking through a labyrinth of dingy side streets in order to get to your hostel.

Have you ever walked around your own city, a city you know intimately and imagined how you would feel if you were arriving in this town for the first time?

Brisbane mid-week is like a ghost town at night; as the clock chimes 5 and the office workers scramble in each direction for the quickest route away their building.
In the blink of an eye, the bustling streets stand still.
The travellers emerge, only to find deserted streets; a city to claim as their own.

Brisbane may be quiet and slower moving than other cities, but this is my town and I think it is beautiful.
