Fine Art Friday–La Ville-Lumière–Paris, France

Paris is where the magic happens.  Often called La Ville-Lumière (The City of Light), it is not surprising that Paris takes holiday lighting (left) to a whole new level and creates sheer elegance on its gorgeous streets. I shot these images a few years ago on a bitter cold December night. Without a tripod, I balanced my camera on walls and held my breath as the shutter released to avoid blurring the image. You may have seen these in an earlier post on night photography, but I couldn’t resist recycling them for the holidays.

Am I spending Christmas in Paris like the McAllisters?  No, but one can dream! Happy Friday!
