Photographer's Note

This photo was shot during the Rugby World Cup 2007, so this is why you can see a giant rugby ball encased in the Eiffel tower, lighted with green spots.

I was shooting during the "Barbie hour", trying to synchronized my long exposures in order to avoid numerous "bateaux-mouches" (tourists boats on the Seine) that were coming from both ways.

Eventually, this one got in the frame before the end of an exposure, and since these boats have powerful projectors to light up the surrounding monuments and buildings, it left a multicoloured thread and lighted the trees in the foreground.

Along with the Eiffel Tower, Passerelle Debilly is the second metallic structure that stands as an attestation to the engineering achievements of its epoch, built for the World Exposition of 1900.

P.S.: This photo is perfectly sharp; the boat on the right is moving up and down because of the waves and as a result, it appears blurred during a long exposure. Same explanation applies to moving leaves in the trees...
