If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me

These were shot with a Nikon D70 - using lens (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300mm telephoto, or after 5 June 2006, (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED. They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0

The original large-format raw files are available upon request.

Bastille Day fireworks in Paris, 2006
Topic: Guest Photography
It's that day…
Our Man in Paris, Ric Erickson, editor of MetropoleParis, was at the Bastille Day fireworks in Paris, with his camera. He sends nine photos, with notes. The full write-up and the shots in higher resolution will be in the new issue of Just Above Sunset this Sunday, the very day Los Angeles celebrates Bastille Day with a big celebration down on Wilshire at the Page Museum and La Brea Tar Pits (the French counsel in Los Angeles has a sense of humor).
Ric's notes from Friday, July 14, 2006, received at seven in the evening in Hollywood, but just before dawn the next day in Paris -
It seemed as if there were more folks out to see the free show this year. Arriving about forty-five minutes early, the entire place in front of the Ecole Militaire was already full. That meant that there were another 350,000 beyond that structure you see in the photos. Here are "before" photos and the event, and two afters" - new, the little blue lights in some photos, low down, are the blue windows of folks' phones. Looks like blue candles, like we were at a mass.

As usual everybody tried to leave at the same time. For the second time I walked home. Riding the métro to get there was enough. Music was old Mozart this year. Dunno what it was. Really, I would really prefer somebody like Slim Harpo.

And here they are -

I guess fire works are really great here. The photos on the other had are great quality. Some site would pay for that especially on the field of internet marketing.
