IdFLQ = International des Feux Loto-Quebec.
So tonight was the first night of this year's Fireworks Competition. Not a bad start, but not a WOW start either. There were only a couple 'Ouuuuuh, Ahhhhh" moments. Not an award winner in my eye.
To make matters worse, what we thought was going to be THE PERFECT VIEW of the fireworks has been hindered by a new building. We can see em ok, but it's not the view we had hoped. I predict a summer of a LOT of eggings for a certain Penthouse Condo. *wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more.*
OK... back to the fireworks. They were ok, the music was fun. Lots of swing music. We found ourselves singing to a couple of em. Fun. I took a whirl at taking a few pics. Nothing spectacular... but then my digital camera is basic and not at all whiz-bangy enough to do the fireworks justice. But for better or worse, here's a couple that, well, didn't totally suck.
Here's a pic I did not expect to be so nice... I'll try a couple more of these. I took this a couple minutes before the fireworks began. This is the church (St Pierre l'Apotre - St Peter the Apostle) that faces our condo. It was taken from the roof. I'll tell you this, we didn't see those amazing blues, in fact it was taken at 9:55pm so it was... well, dark. The only light was from the city. Me likey this one.
