I guess it’s too early to think of an icy Christmas, but summer ends so soon in my part of the world so I take time to prepare and look forward to it. Nah! What I’m actually thinking is about the “colorful” theme for PhotoHunt this week. I’ve had enough of colorful flowers so I’ll leave this object to my fellow photohunters. I found this pic in my digital archive though I don’t know if it’s colorful enough to comply with the theme.
Voila! The Palais des congrés de Paris beautifully illuminated on a dark winter night. The lights all over the building dazzled me so much that I took a snap shot from the car. It’s a concert venue and convention centre in one of Paris’ administrative districts (arrondissement). Among the events held in the venue were the Eurovision Song Contest and the Tour de France ( the annual bicycle race ). I would not mind how cold the winter would be if I get to see colors like this each night. It somehow gives a warm and cheerful atmosphere amidst the cold winter nights. Ok, enough about winter and I’ll let this summer complete its season first. Quite frankly, I can hardly wait to see the colors of autumn again.

So you are going to take your husband to watch Yogi bear when it comes out at Christmas.
You have to learn Swedish?
Thanks for this info, Ann. I’ll tell hubby about it. He’s not really a movie-goer so we might wait for Yogi Bear on dvd. 🙂
I can speak Swedish already. It’s a must here, hehee.
Is the car running when you took this pic?…if so,…wow! galing-galing mo na talaga!…cguro kahit anong ganda ng cam kung tumatakbo ang car, ang hirap cguro kumuha ng focus no?….anyway, ang ganda ng kuha mo, nacapture mo ang grandness ng place, yet very serene and simple…keep it up!…luv yahhh!
Running, Non, but slowly lang kay sa city man. Mao ni akong kalaki basta makagunit ug cam. Sometimes I ask Leif to slow down kay mag take ko ug pics, hehee. Luv y’ too. Tc, muahh.
Most wonderful taken this is.
Great intepretation of Colourful. I like it very much.
