Chapter 26ix: Paris - City of Light

Paris by night? If only I had had my camera with me to capture more of the City of Light. 

I have only a few after-dark, nocturnal photos to share. But first, two more favourites.

Palais de Justice

Paris in the Marais in the Rain

The view from the Montparnasse Tower is one of the best in Paris - by day and by night. Buy the one-day ticket to the top. That way you can shoot during the day, then return way before sunset and the city lights. 

Gare de Montparnasse

If you want to do some nocturnal photography, get there well before the magic hour to set up your tripod. There is competition for space AND beware the gapers and the rude pushers and shovers with their selfies.

and then there was Bastille Day

I set up on the right bank of the Seine
right across from Musée d'Orsay

There was much more of the fireworks to be seen at the Champs de Mars, however I was not prepared to deal with the crowds. With my telephoto lens, I still had a great spot!

It has been fun working on this blog, and wonderful to stay in touch with readers through your many encouraging comments.


It is time now for home once again.
The place that is the most special of all!
N'est-ce pas?
