Theme day : changes


First I wish you all a " Bonne Année " ("Happy New Year") full of love , happiness and most of all great health.
Here is my view of today's theme day. It is what the Eiffel Tower looked like 4 times a night during the end of year 2009. There was a light show every night to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Lady just after the traditionnal 5 minutes sparkling show. Theses changing looks of the Tower were spectacular. I also tried to capture the show on a litlle movie that I put on You Tube if you want to have a look at it live.

We have had hologram light shows on some of our major buildings in Sydney over the Festive Season, too, Laurent. Nothing that can match the romantic pull of your grand dame though!! I hope to stand beneath her once again come your next northern autumn.

May I wish you health and happiness as we journey on into 2010.

Wonderful! You wouldn't have needed fireworks over this one (though I'm sure you still had them).

Happy New Year!

How fun! I laughed out loud at the crowd's appreciative murmur when the Tower imitated the French flag -- such patriots you are! But I like it best when it sparkles like champagne.

Je vous souhaite aussi une très belle et très heureuse année 2010, pleine de bonheurs, petits et grands. Une année d'amour et joie, de beaux voyages, de belles photos, de réussite et bien sûr tout ça en pleine forme...
