In case you missed this year’s Bastille Day festivities, here is a photograph taken on Monday of one of La Fête nationale’s highlights. Les feux d’artifice (fireworks) were set off from les Bassins du Trocadéro opposite la tour Eiffel. Crowds gather on le Champ de Mars to watch the spectacle, which started at 11pm and lased 35 minutes. For this year’s edition, the theme was “Guerre et Paix” (war and peace) in recognition of the centenary of World War I.
