Ignorant question, but is Paris really that bright at night? I've spent a good amount of time in large cities, DC, London, even NYC, but that seems to be astoundingly bright.

grsing, with the kind of enhancements that are available, it is hard to say if some optical steroids have been added or not. Traviata, I don't know who does the music, but I think I've heard it before; perhaps in a movie soundtrack?

Oh, of course massive things can be done to pictures (can't really be trusted anymore in a lot of cases); just wondering from anyone who had been there.

Flyboy,

I have listened to several Parisian accordion CDs since receiving this to replicate it and I can't come close...none of them sound quite as rich...maybe someone else can identify it????

:-B Sous le ciel de Paris
Paroles: Jean Dréjac. Musique: Hubert Giraud 1951
Sung by several French singers like Edith Piaf, Yves Montand, Francis Lemarque. On André Rieux album "croisière romantique" as well.
On the Fnac website you can't listen to Piaf (30sec) and Rieux too.

Sous le ciel de Paris
S'envole une chanson
Hum Hum
Elle est née d'aujourd'hui
Dans le cur d'un garçon
Sous le ciel de Paris
Marchent des amoureux
Hum Hum
Leur bonheur se construit
Sur un air fait pour eux

Sous le pont de Bercy
Un philosophe assis
Deux musiciens quelques badauds
Puis les gens par milliers
Sous le ciel de Paris
Jusqu'au soir vont chanter
Hum Hum
L'hymne d'un peuple épris
De sa vieille cité

Près de Notre Dame
Parfois couve un drame
Oui mais à Paname
Tout peut s'arranger
Quelques rayons
Du ciel d'été
L'accordéon
D'un marinier
L'espoir fleurit
Au ciel de Paris

Sous le ciel de Paris
Coule un fleuve joyeux
Hum Hum
Il endort dans la nuit
Les clochards et les gueux
Sous le ciel de Paris
Les oiseaux du Bon Dieu
Hum Hum
Viennent du monde entier
Pour bavarder entre eux

Et le ciel de Paris
A son secret pour lui
Depuis vingt siècles il est épris
De notre Ile Saint Louis
Quand elle lui sourit
Il met son habit bleu
Hum Hum
Quand il pleut sur Paris
C'est qu'il est malheureux
Quand il est trop jaloux
De ses millions d'amants
Hum Hum
Il fait gronder sur nous
Son tonnerr' éclatant
Mais le ciel de Paris
N'est pas longtemps cruel
Hum Hum
Pour se fair' pardonner
Il offre un arc en ciel

I enjoyed making a little video with accordeon to put on my website
http://82.235.93.13/jacquin/videos_and_pictures.htm
then click on "wine tasting" section.

I can't remember who is playing!

The city is very much as you see it in the photo. Some of the light sources are not as bright in real life, but this is a time exposure. The other parts of the photo reflect the actual perceived brightness, I'd say. However, the real light in the city isn't as yellowish as it appears in the photo.

The sky in Paris is often overcast with low clouds, and the clouds glow with the light from the city below. It can be seen even from 100 km away—very much like Los Angeles.
