Le feu d'artifice

This year's Bastille Day fireworks, held in front of the palace as usual, were beautiful but hard to photograph! VDP is still unable to walk very far so did not make to the best vantage point but still hopes you will enjoy the grand finale tomorrow as did the big crowd on Avenue de Paris!

Le feu d'artifice du 14 juillet, tiré comme à l'accoutumée de la place d'Armes devant le château le 13 juillet a été difficile à photographier mais tellement beau ! VDP ne peut toujours pas marcher beaucoup et ne s'est donc pas rendue à hauteur de la mairie ou même plus près, mais espère que vous apprécierez ces photos prises de près de la maison d'arrêt sur l'avenue de Paris, comme tous les spectacteurs venus nombreux !

The one with people really gives the perspective of how it was.
