Don't Stand in Paris Traffic...


unless it's for a good shot....but hurry!

( I love this, I don't know why but it's just Paris for me and also a night shot that I don't get often)

I think we should just do a night trip to Paris. Sleep during the day, wander about shooting photos at night!

And as I remember, those middle divider cement things aren't very big to stand on! Great night photo, V!

What a coincidence, I was just there hier (yesterday) on our way to Galeries Lafayette.

Well done, personally I find those snap and run nite shots the best .. I often wonder if the time we take to think about what we're shooting doesnt take away something .. OTOH I looked at my photo of those chairs/tables you posted yesterday and mine, taken 'snap and run' truly sucks ... deleted it.....

Awwww, take a petite risk for a great shot. I think that Marie pulled me out of the street more than once in April - hah! Love the night shot, V.

Rob said...

There she goes; sacrificing herself for another awesome night photo! Lovely image!

Alexa said...

Totally worth the risk for this shoot-and-run photo, V!

James said...

Been there done that! This brings back the feelings of being out there and the rush of the cars as I try to get the shot. Great night shot!

Harriet said...

I'm guessing there was a bit of adrenaline flowing when you were braving the traffic for this wonderful photo. You can never predict what a Southern girl is gonna do!

Jack said...

Cool shot, Virginia.

Pamela said...

Incredible V ! But how did you manage this? I know the French are crazy drivers!!

M said...

Ha ha -- I was going to say that Genie had to rescue me!!! I guess we are all crazy enough to risk traffic for the "perfect" shot! This is a wonderful Paris rouge!

Virginia said...

Now it's time to confess. Mary didn't spill the beans that during our Jan'10 trip while doing a quick la Tour Eiffel night jaunt, I lost my mind and ran across the "roundabout" and got mightily honked at by irate Paris drivers. No photo , just stupide!!!
