UFOs over the Louvre

UFOs over the Loiuvre
When I was shooting the long exposure of the Académie française, I noticed that the Dîner en Blanc party at the inner court of the Louvre had reached the next level and lots of those Chinese UFO paper lanterns were set afloat. As this is a long exposure, the paper lanterns trails are shown as streaks. Shot from the Pont des Arts.

I’m actually quite surprised they allowed these lanterns to be used next to the worlds greatest art collection; imaging it setting fire to the roof of the Louvre and burning down the whole Pavillon Sully.
