The next day is off, you decide to make a bet on tonight's sunset expected at 8.45pm.
You head to Paris, meet Thomas Paris at 8.30pm on the Pont de la Tournelle which joins Ile Saint-Louis to the Left bank of Paris.
You setup the gear: tripod, release cable, ND filter, camera, lens.
You are ready, all you need is luck.
It's 8.45pm and you don't see the sun, hidden by buildings.
You notice the colors in the sky getting a nice hue.
And at 9pm the stars align.
You're at the right place at the right time with the right tools and the sky seems on fire with purple hues.
You smile at such a beautiful sunset.
You smile because you experienced the moment.
You smile even more because you captured the whole thing.
You smile because you know you can share this moment with other people and make them smile too.
The sunset is over now. You know it's not the time to pack up.
The blue hour and beginning of the night are full of photographic opportunities.
You start walking along the Seine, you wave at tourists on these boats called "bateaux-mouches".
You notice that the lights got turned on and now illuminates the Notre-Dame gothic cathedral.
You see people eating and drinking close to the water, they are enjoying themselves and so are you.
The best moments are made of simple things.
