2013-02-17 - Vive la Revolution

Following the results of the 2012 French Presidential elections, a massive crowd gathered at Place de la Bastille and rather appropriately took over the Colonne de Juillet, which was originally built to commemorate the 1830 French Revolution. The mood was very positive and everyone was celebrating the change of president. The main light in the scene is coming from a flare that somebody had just lit.
