Ten on Ten: February

1 Flares

1 Flares


After a little one month hiatus, the Ten on Ten is back! This month’s version should have involved more pretty photos from my new apartment, but what can I say, I’m just not a morning person. Luckily, I went out for drinks beside the Louvre and had a chance to wander around and take photos nearby.

So here is a day/night Ten on Ten for February:

1:33 pm

I usually don’t take breaks in the afternoon, but I figure, if other people are taking multiple smoke breaks, I can give myself permission to take a photo break. After all, it was somewhat sunny, with some much-missed blue skies today.


1:36 pm

I love this wall. It’s 3 or 4 stories high and someone just decided to paint it like a newspaper and put 3D tulips on it. Sure, why not?


7:48 pm

Paris coming alive in the evening…even on a Monday night.


7:54 pm

Even at this time of night, the Louvre is so well-lit that you can see every detail. I’d like to take a moment to mention how awesome my new camera is because I didn’t even need a tripod to take this picture! (If you’re not into photography and have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s ok; but if you do understand photography aren’t you impressed? I was!)


10:12 pm

Is this still the Louvre? I’m not quite sure. It sort of goes on and on for blocks.

10:14 pm

This building has a classical façade, but someone decided to put giant streaks of neon lights. I feel like whoever decided to do this was trying to be modern, but staying a little bit safe (or was on a very limited budget). I give it a B- for effort.


10:18 pm

A block away the metro entrance had a giant structure that looked like a very big bracelet.


10:20 pm

Full-ish moon above a very fancy hotel.


10:21 pm


Well, that’s it for this month’s Ten on Ten. I hope the next one will fall on a weekend (or during a trip), so that I’ll have a bit more to work with than just work/happy hour times.

As always, you can see the other participants on French Lily’s site here.

      Merci! C’est le nouveau appareil! Je l’adore! Mon ancien n’aurait pu jamais prendre des photos comme ça dans la nuit.

    Paris by night. Belle série, j’aime beaucoup ta photo de l’entrée du métro Palais-Royal qui est une œuvre de Jean-Michel Othoniel.

      Merci! Je ne savais pas l’artiste qui a fait l’entrée du métro. Je vais regarder ce qu’il a fait d’autre…

    Très beau ten on ten. Superbe promenade dans la capitale : une virée nocturne aux abords du Louvre, ça me manquerait presque!

      Merci! Oui, le Louvre le nuit c’est assez impressionnant et je me dis que je dois y promener plus souvent comme ce n’est pas trop loin de mon travail.
