It was again time to illuminate the Champs Elysées. It happened last Monday evening. There was a crowd to watch a French actress (Mélanie Laurent) push the button, accompanied by the Paris mayor (Bertrand Delanoë). In competition with the professional photographers I had no chance to find the right angle. At least there are some flurry pictures to prove that I was there.
Before and after.
Sometimes the result is unexpected.
A few photos from along the Champs, the Rond Point and around…
… and from the Place de la Concorde.
On the lower part of the Champs there is a Christmas market. I will revert on that part.
