Paris Night Shots

Paris pretty much has a dual personality, kind of like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You have to see everything during the day, but then again at night because I think everything looks better lit up at night. I think the Eiffel Tower at night was my favorite. See what you think.

Eiffel Tower At Night

I didn’t actually get to go up the Eiffel Tower like I wanted because both times I tried, once it was raining, and the other time the very top was shut so you could only go to the 2nd level. I wasn’t about to wait in line for an hour if I couldn’t go all the way up. One really cool thing, though, is that every hour the tower sparkles for 5 minutes. It’s actually really cool to see. We happened to get there about 10 minutes to 11, so it worked out pretty good.

Next on our schedule was the Arc de Triomphe. I had to crank up the ISO on my camera to get some of these shots.

Next up: Moulin Rouge. This place especially looks a lot better lit up at night.

So the moral of the story is that everything in Paris looks better at night.
