Photographer's Note

During a ballade on the Vendôme place, my glance was attracted by the silhouette of Napoleon who took shape in the sky under the effect of powerful projectors.
I tried, not without evil, to collect this moment (unfortunately with an over-exposure of the column). The Vendôme column is a Parisian monument located at the center of the place of the same name in Ier district of Paris.
With the passing of years, it accepted the names of column of Austerlitz, then column of the Victoire before becoming column of the Large Army.
It is commonly called Vendôme column.
Completed in 1810 and dedicated to the glory of the victorious armies, the column was baptized column of the Large Army. A statue of Napoleon as Caesar by the sculptor Antoine-Denis Chaudet (1763-1810) was placed at the top.
