City of Lights Night Shots; Paris City Specials

Central Europe 1st part; 4-days traveling solo in France
October 10 to October 14, 2013


Paris has many nicknames, like "The City of Love", but its most famous is "La Ville-Lumière" (The City of Light), a name it owes first to its fame as a center of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment. The sobriquet's "light" took on a more literal sense when Paris became one of the first European cities to adopt gas street lighting. In 1828, Paris began lighting the Champs-Elysées with gas lamps. It was the first city in Europe to do so, and so earned the nickname "La Ville-Lumière" or The City of Light.

Intentionally walked at night to see how the lights illuminated on major tourist spots. Started around 1900H from Notredame de Paris going back to Concorde metro station. Tripod is allowed to use and no fees collected as everything pictured outside.
