Photographer's Note

Bastille Day in Paris is the national day of celebration. In the morning a military parade along the Champs Elysee, in the evening a firework display beside the Eiffel Tower. This is the third year that I have been to watch the fireworks and the first with a camera. Though I actually live next to the Eiffel Tower I chose a more remote vantage point (a) to avoid the crowds which gather on the Champs De Mars, (b) to get a better perspective on the event. This years firework display was supposed to represent the olympics (multi-coloured rings) but, to be honest, it didn't come out clearly what the fireworks were supposed to show. Not as impressive as previous years, but still good all the same.
