Firework on the Eiffel Tower


Yesterday evening, as I mentioned it in my previous post, there was a firework in Paris to celebrate Bastille day. I generally don't enjoy fireworks for they bore me very quickly! But this one was absolutely magnificent and I consider myself as very lucky to have seen it; not only were the effects very good but they also managed to mix them with the usual enlightening of the tower. Really fantastic. I am a happy tax payer!

  2. Salut Eric,

    Je viens de decouvrir ton blog, et je l'adore! Comme tu peux le voir par le manque d'accent sur mon clavier, je n'habite plus la France (depuis 1995) mais les photos que tu prends me rendent tres nostalgique!

    Keep up the great posts!

  3. Absolutely spectacular. I could kick myself now for never having gone to the Eiffel Tower for the fireworks on July 14 (I was in Paris for July 14 in 2004.) This is something that I will do as soon as possible. At some point they light up the Tower in blue, white, and red, and it's pretty cool. I believe that the green and yellow this year were in honor of Brazil, since France is celebrating the "Year of Brazil."

    Do they play music during the fireworks and, if they do, what kind of music is it?

    As usual, thanks for the photo.

  4. > Rock. LOL.

    > Marely. Thank you. I will visit your blog soon too.

    > Elisabeth you should (kick yourself for not having gone to the Eiffel Tower in 2004!)

    Yeah the Red, white and blue thing was quite impressive and yes they had many "tableaux" relating to Brazil. As a matter of fact they did play music at the same time and all kinds of music (Brazilian music of course - and not the usual songs - except the Girl from Ipanema -, which was good) but also rock, classical, etc. Really well made.

    >Sophie. Well Australia is not bad either! Mais bon, c'est vrai que depuis que je fais ce blog je réalise encore plus à quel point j'ai de la chance d'habiter dans cette ville!
