La Ville de Paris Gets Ready for Night

I was on the hill in the Montmartre part of Paris just after the sun had set. I pointed the camera over the sprawl of the city just as the lights were coming on for the evening. I made it my personal mission to walk down into the city that evening, meander around, and visit at least three pastry shops and eat a silly number of desserts. I tricked myself into thinking that I might be burning a lot of calories by doing so much walking. It’s amazing how easily I was able to justify French desserts.

  • You did it again. I wore myself out this afternoon working on old HDR images and decided to knock it off for a few days. And now I have some more inspiration. Dad-rat it. Done in again.

  • “LA ville de paris…” . French guy that loves your work and speak english like…a french guy!!!

  • LOL, Trey, I sure couldn’t follow you around. I love desserts ;-)!! Great photo of Paris at night. Thanks for sharing.

  • Beautiful city. Now I’ve got an itch to go back.

  • Trey, one of my friends said you should make postcards. I told her to save the picture to her computer, print it, and use it as a postcard, simple, hey. Hope you don’t mind. I don’t think you sell those yet?

  • Thanks all!

    Fabrice – thanks for that… I get the feminine and masculine confused in French… which is inexcusable after 4 years of taking French!

  • Ooh la la! 😀

  • How perfect to see this. I just booked a flight to Europe and leave in 8 days. As always, your work is inspiring!!!

  • If i can help you in French it’s a pleasure…you help me every day in HDR photography! And i’m sure your French is better than my english!

    I’ll be in Paris in one month. My mission is to attempt to capture, if I can, the essence of what you have achieved in HDR. You photos are an inspiration. I take it this was from one RAW image?

  • Thanks all.

    Have fun in Europe Michael! 🙂

    Robert – no this was 5 exposures
