Photo Challenge: Inviting Nighttime

During our trip to Italy and France in 2011, I took hundreds of photos, the majority of which were daytime shots. Here are some favourite captures from two of France’s cities in late evening and night.

I still find them as inviting as ever.

Lights wink on as dusk descends.

Window-shopping in Cannes; almost as fun as the real thing!

Home Sweet Home for three nights.

On to Paris:
