Project 365 – Day 306: A wet evening on boulevard Saint-Laurent

November 1 2012

Having not taken any pictures of glowing pumpkins yesterday, I had read earlier in the week that there was going to be an installation made up of 500 candles on Place Gérald Godin (outside the Mont Royal métro station) from 6-8.30pm tonight and tomorrow.

Despite the rain, I headed up to avenue Mont Royal to check it out, really hoping that it hadn’t been cancelled – since I hadn’t shot anything else during the entire day. Unfortunately there wasn’t a single candle in sight and with the rain stating to come down harder, I decided to head back home hoping to get a few snaps along the way. The conditions weren’t that ideal and I ended up taking just a few shots at high ISO and having to shoot quick to prevent my camera lens getting wet – so quality is not the best 🙁

Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow and perhaps I’ll try to find out if the candles will be lit.
