Purple Arch

The Grande Arche skyscraper in La Défense, Paris, illuminated for a rock concert which was part of the Fête de la Musique, a music festival celebrated in many countries of the world.


Taking this photo was no pleasure at all as it was drizzling as hell and all following photos show more rain drops on the lens than anything else, despite my attempts to dry it. Furthermore I had the feeling that many of the people around were not the kind of guys who hold the right of property in very high esteem. So two good reasons to be quick in assembling and disassembling tripod and camera and taking the photos. The colours were changing once in a while so it was kind of a pity that I couldn't wait but well... I still have my camera, that's most important.
