I don't know how this Nuit Blanche mirror effect was created, but I like it! Great photo, too.

Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - Groume - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!

  1. Hello there! Thanks for blogging this image!

    As for the mirror effect, two mirrors were erected before the choir of Notre-Dame, slightly off center and tilted, so that the organ at the end of the nave could be seen while looking towards the apse.

    I don't really know what was the message of this work of art, but it sure was a nice effect.

    I arrived at Notre-Dame shortly before 3 am. There weren't so many people inside. The lights were dim, but subtly enhanced the architecture. What struck me was the silence: people didn't talk, and most of them were sitting on the chairs in the nave, quietly watching the walls...

  2. What a brilliant idea, and effect. I love it! And your capture, too.

    Sounds like a magical night. I've been looking at Nuit Blanche photos as they pop up on Flickr, and reading about how the event went, elsewhere.
