Place de l’Opéra - Paris
"She could not sit still. She talked profusely and continuously with a feverish breathlessness like one in fear of silence. She sat as if she could not bear to sit for long; and, when she rose to buy cigarettes, she was equally eager to return to her seat. Impatient, alert, watchful, as if in dread of being attacked, restless and keen, she drank hurriedly; she smiled so swiftly that he was not even certain it had been a smile; she listened only partially to what was being said to her; and, even when someone in the bar leaned over and shouted a name in her direction, she did not respond at first, as if it were not her own."

The De Luminarie Cagna. A giant colonnade made of wood and hundreds of thousands of LEDs. The entrance area is an imposing 28 meters high. The audience walks into a fairy tale gallery, surrounded by light and color.
I’ve attempted numerous GIFs of nighttime traffic and they’ve never looked good. Ever. This is beautiful and impressive.
