My city is holding an amateur photography contest. I tried shooting the city from a hill at sunrise, but the hill was in the wrong spot. I couldn't really get the sunrise and the city in the same frame. Should have stayed in bed. Then I tried going downtown to shoot some of the landmarks. I think I'll submit the last one, it has two landmarks in one and good representation of the French and English, something that the city is known for.

After the balloon launch in the last post there was a Powered Paraglider demonstration. A paraglider is basically a large parachute, but can glide for a longer time then a parachute. A powered paraglider is a paraglider with a big fan strapped on the rider's back. This looked like a lot of fun. I've been parachuting a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it once the parachute opened and everything was alright, but the few seconds before that was a bit scary. I can feel my heart rate climb just thinking about it. Seriously, it's climbing as I type this. Paragliding seems like it'd be much more enjoyable for me, and you don't need a plane, 'cause you can start from the ground. I bet you could get some great pictures up there too!
