  • Another sunrise in my city. It’s (almost) impossible to get a picture without no one here during the day. It’s very crowded roundabout and also a touristic place; Champs Élysées Avenue starts here as well. So on a sunny Saturday morning, I went to admire the sun come out from behind the buildings. And it was very lovely ✨
.
It took 30 years to finish the Arc de Triomphe, and no wonder: it's incredibly elaborate. Relief sculptures at the base of each of the four pillars show four victories and war scenes; the top of the arch has the names of major successes during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods. Less important victories can be found on the inside walls, plus the names of 558 generals. The underlined names are to show that the general died in battle. 🇫🇷
