Jan 28, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Champs-Élysées

Paris, France, taken on December 28, 2010

I had never been a big fan of the Champs-Élysées nor of Paris, but this photo of the Champs-Élysées, taken at night on top of the Arc de Triomphe during my first ever trip to Paris, became one of my all-time favourite travel photos. The Ferris wheel at the other end – Place de la Concorde – isn’t always there, and I was lucky that it was there during the Christmas season. And the lanes of traffic on the self-proclaimed most beautiful avenue in the world – with the sidewalks lit in blue, the entire scene looks like a national flag stretched out from top to bottom (though interestingly, out of all the tri-coloured European flags, none of them are in the order of white, red, and blue, either horizontal or vertical.)
