This time of night only lasts a fleeting five minutes. So, as a photographer in Paris, it's a major commitment to get in place for that dire period. There's never an easy decision, and... after all... it is Paris, so there is no "bad" place to be.
I'm glad it's a city where many restaurants stay open late. I miss the "normal" dinner time, since those are the prime sunset hours. I usually try to grab a snack around 4 PM to carb-up for a busy shooting session. And then after I eek out every last minute of atmospheric light, I like to go to a late-night restaurant to edit photos and relax a little bit. Okay, actually I relax a lot.
