Nice picture!

You can admire the creative parking abilities of parisians!

I used to cycle through there, at about this time,on my way back from work. Good fun but not for the faint hearted!

Is the redness along the side of the buildings from the setting sun? Did it enhance your toning?--Chris

I think that it was partially the setting sun, which certainly enhanced the toning. The buildings are a bit red [in the real world] though, and I changed the colouration in photoshop. I was feeling quite experimental when I did this! Wink

Tophee, have you noticed how many Parisians park their scooters on the pavement? It would drive me incandescent with rage when I would have to jump off the pavement to avoid being hit by a scooterist. I wouldn't fancy cycling near the 'Etoile'. You are very brave! Smile

As I was working in Puteaux, and trainning in the evening in the Bois de Vincennes, My route was taking me through the place de l'etoile as well, but there is two road that circle around it, rue de presbourg and rue de tilsit. You get lots of traffic lights but but your chances of staying alive are (slightly) better.

As for scooters, mine was stolen on a pavement, in front of a police station. :-(
The great thing in paris is that whith a scooter or a bike, you can really park withint two foot of your destination, not like in london where it is even harder to park a bike than it is to park a car.
