I’ve decided to do a series on Christmas lights in Paris this year. Here are the lights at La Défense, the tall-towered business district just west of the city. I work at La Défense and this is my route home. I like the long, pedestrian-zone Esplanade because it’s car-free.
I took these photos walking home from work this evening at 6:15 pm (if I had a tripod, they would have turned out better.) The weather right now is perfect: cold, dry and sunny. I hope it lasts.
I’m particularly excited about Christmas this year. Don’t know why. The view in the photo below is facing due east towards the Champs-Elysées. You can see the illuminated Eiffel Tower in the bottom right-hand corner.
Here’s a similar post I did in December 2013 entitled La Défense Sparkle. It’s interesting to see the difference in the decorations.
