Photo of the Week – July 12, 2013
Bastille Day, (La Fête Nationale en francais), commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, the event which marked the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison on July 14, 1789. For a view of the feux d’artifice (fireworks) that start around nightfall, head to the Champ de Mars, hilly Montmartre, or Tour Montparnasse for a great view of the entire city.   photo by Olivier Issaly , via Flickr
