Bright Lights Tonight


Bright Lights Tonight, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.
Opposite Gare du Nord is a fairground's worth of neon lights trying to
tempt weary travellers into caf├ęs, hotels or fast food joints.

Strangely enough, in front of the station's facade itself is another
kind of nightlife, where many of Paris' homeless people unfold well-
worn cardboard boxes or unfurl filthy sleeping bags and bed down for
the night.

Two ways of life, worlds apart, but just a beer can's throw away...
