New year on the Champs-Elysees, for my friends by Elcet ()

For the night of the New Year, 800,000 to 1.5 million people gathered at the Champs-Elysees, the most famous Paris avenue, to celebrate the New Year. These picts were taken some minutes after midnight. I dedicate this pict to all my friends here, wishing them a happy and creative year, with excellent health for them and for people they love, a good job (for those who are in age of working), enough to eat and a comfortable house, and no bombs at all! Never forget to act for our planet this year too (and participate to the Earth Day at Renderosity on April 22th). Best viewed full size. Comments welcome. I hope that you enjoyed my Christmas post:
A Nativity from Provence
Techdata: Nikon D70 with Nikkor 1.8/50 (equiv. 75mm full-size 24x36 format), 1/50s at f/2.5, hand-held, ISO 1000, manual focussing. The first pict was done holding the camera above the head trying to guess what the framing could be without the aid of the viewfinder (the LiveView is a true benefit but does not exist on the D70). No postwork except for resizing and collage of the two photos.
I will slightly delay my two santons posts, because my next upload will be some nice Christmas presentations in Paris shops. I have to apologize now to you, my friends and people who favorited me, because I have been a very bad RR member these holidays, I have not commented you at all, and I am very late in my daily work too. But I will do my best to visit your galleries as soon as time permits.

I completely understand about getting behind here at the galleries. For me it's sometimes impossible to catch up when I'm gone for even a day or two. I find 300 ebots in my inbox and sometimes I have no choice but to take a break. This is a gorgeous photo. What a festive scene. Thanks for sharing your part of the world with us. Happy 2009!

Les champs Elysées revisités en pleine immersion dans un bain de foule avec les guirlandes de Noël qui donnent un supplément de perspective, c'est superbe. Le fait que l'on ne voit pas les fils électriques donne l'impression que ces mêmes guirlandes "flottent" dans le vide. Meilleurs voeux à vous deux.
