1st January 2012: Eiffel Tower
I went to the Eiffel Tower for new year celebrations. I was disappointed to learn that fireworks were forbidden in Paris but I saw some videos of the previous years and they had some light show on the tower.
5th may 2011 : inauguration of the “First Tower” at La Defense near Paris.
First is the name of this tower because it’s the first one of the revival plan of the La Défense district. It’s not actually a new tower since it was built over an existing building. The original building was 155 meters high and it has been totally refurbished to give birth to the First Tower which is now the highest tower in France with 231 meters. For this occasion, they organized a light show on the tower and I decided to go and try my new camera with some night shots.
