We walked through the plaza, coming and going from our Seine River trip. People were just arriving to join the party as we walked away close to midnight! Fun, festive, and a great place to watch the light change on Eiffel Tower.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury

Hi, I haven't taken any pictures at that time of the morning but unless security measures have been increased since my trip I can't imagine you having a problem. Good luck, I'm curious now how they'll turn out Best wishes
