This photograph was taken on the roof of a department store in Paris on Christmas eve. Because it was my only chance to escape security and climb up there through the scaffolding which you can see on the right side, as security was too busy with the very intense crowd on that day. And also the clouds looked nice that night. Even though I pushed them beyond the border of realistic photography in postwork, they were nice to begin with... And I felt to be quite close to them from up there, with a lot of wind and the distant clamor of the cheering crowd filling the streets to get that last precious present for their loved ones. Quite a fantastic feeling... I hope you can get a little bit of it with me as all the other cats who walk the rooftops at night!
