Musee du Louvre

Musee du Louvre by Night

Musee du Louvre by Night

Most of the time I do not bring a tripod with me when I travel with minimal gear. And that was the case on this trip to Paris a few years ago. For this long exposure shot of Musee du Louvre, I carefully sat the camera down on the edge of the reflection pool in front of the museum; and then composed the frame with the limited degrees of freedom. After some cropping and noise reduction during post-processing, I found the final image to be quite acceptable.

Under The London Eye

Image

The London Eye, erected in 1999, is located on the River Thames banks in London, England. The structure is 135 metres tall and the Ferris wheel has a diameter of 120 metres.

The London Eye attracts over 3.5 million visitors annually. Even on this gloomy day in early April, there was a long lineup of tourists waiting to view the city from a high vantage point. I had no patience to go through the queuing process, so I was quite satisfied with just a quick snap shot under the London Eye.

Midnight Stroll in Paris

Midnight Stroll in Paris

After the delicious dinner at Le Jules Verne atop the Eiffel Tower, a relaxing walk along Seine River back to the hotel seemed like a good decision. At midnight, there were very few pedestrians and automobiles around. It made us felt that the entire Paris was at our disposal. And The City of Light did not disappoint ….. the streets, buildings, and bridges were all beautifully lit up.  It was truly a dream destination for night time photographers.
