Some more night shots

Before I leave for Sweden (I will hopefully be back and able to post again December 13), here are some more night shots. Two from Place de la Concorde, one of the Champs Elysées and one of the roof of the Grand Palais (along the Champs Elysées). It was raining and I took the photos with my trembling hands… Anyhow.

See you (rather) soon!!

City of Light!! Peter, you're the best... at least I can see Paris through your lens... and it's FOC! :P

belles photos de nuit sur la place de la concorde, bravo. J'aime beaucoup la composition de ta deuxième photo avec la Tour Eiffel et l'obélisque encadre par les lampadaires.

Greetings to your mother, hopefully she is doing well and you can enjoy also a little snow in Sweden!

Gorgeous photos! I love the decorations on Champs Elysees.

C'est vraiment beau Paris illuminé, en rentrant tu pourras nous montrer l'avenue Montaigne, les façades des grands couturiers sont très bien décorées certaines années.
Quel courage sous la pluie, tu ne ménages pas ton pauvre genou. Bon voyage. Prend la Suède dans tes bras pour moi.

Ash said...

Lovely images. The lights are gorgeous!

Have a safe trip. Sending lots of thoughts and prayers your way...

Paris, ville de lumières de Noël. Bon voyage, et ne mange pas trop de lussekattor.

Fais bon voyage, à bientôt!

La tour bien sûr se voit de partout. Et ce rapprochement de ces deux tours d'époques différentes est super
Je te fais noter qu'il y a des toilettes publiques mais payantes à ce bout du jardin des Tuileries
Et ds la jardin on peut se désaltérer, se rafraichir ce qui n'a pas été une nécessité pour toi
Tes mains tremblantes c'est pas la vieillesse mais le froid, dis moi ?
Déjà le genou (d'après Lyliane... Tes admiratrices vont avoir les yeux descillés)... Tu es tout de même pas aussi vieux que l'Obélix ?

Bon tour en Suède, veinard. Fais toi chouchouter par Mom' et toutes tes soeurs.
Ramène des bougies de la Ste Lucie, surtout !

I suppose your camera has image stabilization built in (IS) as these are very stable looking pictures to me. And the color is very good for being taken at night. I like them a lot.

Good stuff, Peter. Good wishes for the home trip.

(Soon you can join the B&W club)

Prends bien soin de toi en Suède et profite bien de ta famille!

Paris certainly is gorgeous at Christmastime. Great photos. I hope your hands weren't too cold when taking them. Enjoy your trip!

Glad to see that the painting stress is over! Beautiful night pictures; and not blurred...

I really like those night pictures. I took one or two when I was in Florida, just trying out the night settings on the camera. Not that my camera has many settings, it's really a point-and-shoot, but it takes nice pics.
Have a good trip to Sweden , give your "mor" a hug.

dommage que le plaisir soit gaché par cette brume sur toutes le sphotos. Un petit post-traitement améliorerait grandement le plaisir

I really like the first one - beautiful tomes and colours for a night shot.

Sorry about the spam link, but Bloggers recent changes leave me no other option

Nathalie said...

My favorite is the first one too, although the Champs Elysées are pretty spectacular, as always.

Christmas lights in Avignon too,along with chapter 2 of my crime witness's adventures. Comme on over !

Kate said...

The shadowy tone gives the photos a subdued effect. Nice!
