DowsherVision from PARIS, France

This is really beautiful I like this night shot and the sense of motion due to the slow shutter speed at the bottom.
En plus ça me fait penser que ma ville préférée me manque ;) ça fait si longtemps que je n'y ai pas mis les pieds. La dernière fois que je m'y suis rendu, je ne m'intéressais pas encore à la photo comme je le fait maintenant, j'aurai donc du temps à rattraper le jour où j'y retournerai.
Bonne journée à toi :)

That's so AMERICAN. This specific old style architecture and the new one, side by side with these neon lights. Wow. It shines like a jewel. The show goes on, even in the streets ! Love it.

@Phil David Morris: Many thanks for the compliment. I think I'll reconsider posting a "portrait" view of the marquee from the same night which incorporates the vertical sign. I thought people might be getting tired of the theatre photos. :-)
