Found this picture I took in Paris.
I love this picture, not for what it is but the story.
Seated at the table with three other tourists in our group. we had a lovely dinner and two bottles of wine, but no one else drank. By the time the show started I was feeling very happy.
We were told No photography.
Then as the show proceeded I saw a woman walking around using her camera. So I thought why not!
When this can can routine started, got the camera out and took this when they started to swirl around.
A man came up to me and said no pictures. I replied that there is a woman walking around taking pictures.
His answer was that she is taking publicity photos for us.
Only picture taken on the night, but at least I got to keep it.

Cute story, but I have to say I really like the photo! The slower shutter speed highlights the motion and energy. Along with the colorful background, a very appealing shot.

I really like it too for the same reasons. Thank you so much for sharing this and the backstory. I'm glad you went for it! S-
