Photographer's Note

Continuation of my series on the Tour Eiffel.
Here a reflection in the shop window of a store.
At 6 pm, the night is not still totally there.
But the tower Effel begins its first night show thousands of small lights begin sparkling of the height below. This spectacle lasts 10 minutes every hour. It began January 1st, 2000 at midnight, it had to last one year but in front of the protests of the Parisian which did not want that it stops, the show continues every evening.
I voluntarily bored the reflection of certain parts of the tree to strengthen the contrast with the orangy light of the shop window and I crop the original photo to obtain a very geometrical square format.


Suite de ma srie sur la tour Effel.
Ici un reflet dans la vitrine dun magasin.
A 18 heures, la nuit nest pas encore totalement l.
Mais la tour Effel commence son premier spectacle de la nuit: des milliers de petites lumires se mettent scintiller du haut en bas. Ce spectacle dure 10 minutes chaque heure. Cela a commenc le 1 janvier 2000 minuit, cela devait durer une anne mais devant les protestations des parisiens qui ne voulaient pas que cela sarrte, le spectacle continue chaque soir.
Jai volontairement fonc le reflet de certaines parties de larbre pour renforcer le contraste avec la lumire orange de la vitrine et jai recadr la photo originale pour obtenir un format carr trs gomtrique.
