Scooter Speeding by the Sacré-Cœre at Night

The streets surrounding Sacré-Cœre are bustling with tourists, music, lights, and color, however this one street tucked in the back was mysteriously quite, dim and lacking the vibrant colors that exist all over Montmartre. It was the perfect spot to capture the mood, architecture and shadows cast by the street lights. As the shutter was open a scooter sped by and broke the silence, creating one beautiful flash of color.
