Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche (White Night) is a celebration of art. There were exhibits and art installations set up around the city ranging from awesome to awful. Some were small and many were very large. The huge mirrored disco ball was hung from a crane over the fountain in Luxembourg Gardens and the bright spotlights shining on it sent light reflections spinning around the gardens.

There was a beautiful full moon that kept popping out from behind the clouds to add to a magical evening.
This old lady did not make it 'til morning and cried "uncle" just after midnight, tired but happy not to have missed "Nuit Blanche" in Paris.

I was not going to come to your blog for a month but I see that you are able to post from France. Your photos are truly beautiful. I read that from 10 October to January there is a very nice exhibition at Le Grand Palais called “de Byzance à Istanbul” it might be interesting.

Cezar & Leia,, It is so nice to be here. Thank you for always visiting my blogs.

Louciao, Thank you. It is Paris, how can I not?

Peter, yes, a happy coincidence. :=]

Virginia,, thank you. I think it will be my favorite and yes it was magical. But you know that just being in Paris is magical. The full moon and Nuit Blanche just something extra.

Vagabonde, Thank you for checking and visiting. I will try to post as much as I can while I'm here. Very good internet connection in my apartment. I will try to attend the exhibit. Thanks for the heads up.
