Some cool radio station images:
365 Days Project, Day 13
Image by Ovais_92
The lady driving her Cadillac sighs; her husband wanted a divorce, because she had been unfaithful to him. She knew he’d probably have some paperwork drawn up by the lawyer by the time she got home, and it would mean losing the car, the house, the cabin near the river, and all the social events she usually went to. She’s trying to think of a way out, but she’s trapped, because she did something wrong-not once, but twice-and there was no going back now. If she stopped to think about it, though, she probably would have done it again, given the chance. Maybe she could move in with him.. If she told him she was pregnant..
The senior citizen in the red Chevrolet smiles when he remembers it’s almost his eightieth birthday. His sons were lawyers and bankers, so they took care of him and his wife. They had raised them right, and it made him feel like there was nothing better they could have done in their lifetime. He was determined to enjoy his days until they ended, so he was taking his wife on a cruise to France.
The girl in the green Toyota Corolla texts her friend quickly. She’s on her way home after school ended at 4pm; she’s looking forward to changing into her pajamas and going back to sleep. She’s usually on her iPhone all day, either texting, playing a game, or on Facebook. Her phone vibrates again, and she decides to ignore it when she sees who the text was from. A friend of hers liked her, and knew that she wasn’t interested in a relationship, but he had told her he would wait for her. She wanted to let him down easy, but she rarely ever thought of him, so she hadn’t asked her girlfriends what they thought she should do.
The boy in the silver Toyota Corolla sings along with the music, strumming an imaginary guitar with one hand.
‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street’
It was his day off, so he had gone to buy a new string for his guitar, and he was a few minutes away from home. He had work the next day, but it wasn’t work for him, because he worked in the best place he could-a radio station-so it was doing what he loved, all day long.
Everyone is waiting for the green arrow. They’re all looking at the same image. But their minds are focused on something else altogether. A different perspective from each angle.

Fogos em Montreal / Fireworks at Montreal

Festival Internacional de Fogos de Montreal
L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, also known as the Montreal Fireworks Festival, is a major international fireworks competition. (It was formerly known as Le Mondial SAQ, and l’International Benson & Hedges.) It has been held yearly in La Ronde over the Dolphins lake, since 1985, and is named after its main sponsor, Loto-Québec. The display is hailed as the best and largest fireworks festival in the world. It hosts an estimated 3 million each year, with approximately 6,000 fireworks set off during each show.
Each summer, eight or nine pyrotechnical companies from different countries present a 30-minute long pyromusical show, competing for the Gold, Silver and Bronze Jupiters or trophies.
For the 20th anniversary in 2004, eight of the previous top competitors (all of whom had won the Gold Jupiter) were invited to fight for the unique Platinum Jupiter in June and July 2004, which was won in the end by the German company WECO.
The competition takes the form of a series of biweekly fireworks shows usually beginning in late June and ending in late July. The fireworks are synchronized to music which is also broadcast over a provincial radio station (RockDétente in 2005, Rythme FM 2006-onwards). Spectators can purchase tickets to have reserved seats in La Ronde: they can buy them on site, on-line or through the Admission group to obtain an exceptional view of the lower altitude display and the whole perspective. However, tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people watch the fireworks for free from nearby locations.
