Lights on Avenue des Champs Elysées

Wednesday I went on top of Arc de Triomphe with my boyfriend to see when Audrey Tautou switches on the lights on Champs Elysées (well, not her, as we were upstairs, but the result). I thought it would be more crowded upstairs but it was bearable and we actually could see something. After some minutes it was practically empty up there so we could take some good ones. It's no big secret, our camera is not a professional one, so it's bit weak in the night. Anyway I think we have some nice material in the end. 

We want to make a stop-motion video - do you know any good jpg-avi converter program? I would post the result (just some seconds, this is our first one)!!

After we went downstairs to the avenue, taking some close shots of the lights and some windows, like Marks&Spencer which opened later that night with a big show. 

Avenue des Champs Elysées - fab, right?

that's me :)

 the new Christmas lights

the south side

the lights change colors

they are eco-friendly LEDs, they will consume as much energy as 8 families during the holiday season (less than ever)

the new M&S store

lit also by LED 

winter arrived to H&M as well

Later I'll visit the Christmas market as well..
