Every year for 3 years now, The "Nuit Blanche" (White Nights) celebrate contemporary creativity in all its forms (more information at www.paris.fr. There's performances, installation, exhibit of all sorts all over the city in hundreds places to visit.
Unfortunatly, I wasn't well prepared, I was also slow down by friends that were with me, I've missed a lot of thing eventhough I was up all night (until 8am) strolling through the city trying to see as much as I can.

This picture was taken at "La Bourse" in front of the "Palais Grognard" which was the french equivalent of New York's Wall Street.

A DJ's and VJ's set was organised there. Among them was Dj Jeff Mills who was mixing on movies from Buster Keaton and others. On the photo, one can recognised pictures taken from Fritz Lang's movie "Metropolis".

This photo is a composite made from 6 photos of the same place (check the workshop).

My camera can record the sounds around me when I'm taking a picture. If you wish to listen a 15 sec excerpt of the music that was playing click here (wav sound file).

C'est superbe comme idée. j'aime beaucoup ce grand panneau (ambiance complètement surréaliste) et la petite horloge dans le coin.
Par contre mauvais point pour le premier plan qui à mon sens détourne beaucoup notre regard de l'essentiel.
J'ai fait un ws, en ayant bien à l'esprit qu'il fallait garder la foule.
ps1) merci pour la musique :o)
ps2) vers 4h30 il n'y avait plus grand monde

I really like what you've done here Romain. Very creative. I have to agree with the foreground being a bit too bright. I would love to have gone to that event. And the music is exactly the same as I listen to!

Je partage l'avis de Pascal quant à cette photo. J'aime beaucoup le panneau et toutes ses pièces, l'ambiance aussi. Pour l'avant plan, il y a peut-être deux ou trois têtes dérangeantesm, mais là encore, c'est matière à perception. Je suis certaine que pout toi les individus ont une expresion à partager car c'est ce qu'ils font en fait.

Intéressante composition Romain !
J'aurais bien aimé pouvoir t'accompagner.
A la différence d'autres commentaires, j'aime bien le premier plan avec ces visages surtout le personnage de droite, pris sur le vif.
A plus

Excellent composite de tes 6 photos. C'est subtil et on ne s'en rend pas compte du premier coup d'oeil. Le résulat final capture bien l'esprit de cette célébration. Bravo.
