Paris est magique la nuit !

"Down the Seine"

"Gilded"

 "Wrapped in Lights"

"Street Chandeliers"

* Paris is indeed magical at night, especially during the Christmas season.  Even though these are not as sharp as I would like, I wanted to share them with you.  I am still working on my night photography skills!

Has the third one been taken at the beginning of the Champs Elysées?

The Americans like Bets.
They are very good to make us rediscover Paris

Ooh la la Mrs, these are indeed magnificent night shots. I look up towards the pretty coloured night sky lights from my lowly sin bin of archives. May you throw a bottle of vino in for company is all I ask and perhaps a crepe and Jean Reno or/and Alain delon too for research purposes. Merci Beaucoup.

As you took two or three of these when we were together, I don't have to ask where and how they were taken! Wonderful! Paris is nice (also) by night, n'est-ce pas?

Virginia said...

Peter, I took all of these with you and thanks for not divulging HOW they were taken. I have a reputation to uphold!LOL

Marley, I thought the fact that the wires of the chandaliers disappeared at night made them even more magical.

B, Knox, Omami thanks so much.
