Photography - Snapping some shots during a midnight flight through asphalt skies

Here's something a little different from my usual PGPG posts. Last night I went out for a leisurely midnight flight through the city.
I took some pictures- clichéed clichées perhaps.
After a bit of encouragement from Khnoum, I figured I'd post some of them. They're in the order they were taken, so if anyone cared or knew Paris well enough, they could track my loop through Paris.

The Seine looking like an impressionist painting thanks to the mist

Quai Conti, maybe...

Bizarre storefront on the boulevard St Germain (no, I'm not saying what shop it is. ;))

Place de la Concorde

Passerelle Solferino, thank you google maps.

Outside the Jardins des Tuileries

A lion in the night on mane street. ; p
Mane street is just off of place Charles de Gaulle.

Boulevard Pereire

Porte Maillot

2h15mins and 16kms later it was time to hit the sack.
