Now you see it, now you don't.

 We got out of bed at sparrow's fart this morning to go and watch the implosion of a building in town - although there is currently extensive demolition going on, this was the first implosion. We stood on a rooftop and drank champagne beforehand, and felt exhilarated and shaky afterwards.

I don't know why, but we expected a PA system, and a countdown, or something. Instead, as we were watching, a series of incredibly loud booms were heard in quick succession, followed by what felt like a huge pause, before the building gracefully sank into the ground below. Here are my two photos:
