Photographing the Arc de Triomphe
Halfway up the Champs Elysées, I got a closer and better view of the Arc than the first take.
At this juncture, the features of the Arc are visible to the eye. And the headlights from passing cars add an ethereal beauty to the scene.
This last image was taken right in front of the Arc de Triomphe. It's a hairy experience with cars whizzing past in both directions. There's a narrow 3 feet margin of safety for the photographer to take a souvenir shot without stepping into no man's land.
