Paris Street Scenes-2

After a long, chilly walk from the river up to the Champs-Elysées, we arrived at the Arc de Triomphe just as the wind and rain were really kicking in. Nearly impossible to keep water droplets off the lens and setting up on a tripod was pretty much out of the question so I had to grab what I could hand held using lamp and sign posts for stability; this one was taken from the shelter of a store canopy just down the avenue. All the trees along the street are uniformly decorated with beautiful lights as far as the eye can see and now I can appreciate the gleaming wet street scenes.
