    A fortnight of fireworks

    Paris Bastille day fireworks, 14th July 2012


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Marcia Taylor’s day job, as part of British Airways’ cabin crew, takes her all over the world and the 27-year-old never travels anywhere without her camera. Believe it or not but this was her first time shooting fireworks.

    She travelled to Paris especially for the fireworks on Bastille Day in 2012. “It was a disco theme, the music started and as soon as the fireworks began the crowd had a fantastic atmosphere, every single person was on their feet singing along not taking their eyes of the fireworks,” she says.

    This iReport is featured in our summer skies gallery on CNN.

    Having been to Paris on new years eve to see a fireworks display only to discover it wasn't taking place that year we researched in depth and ensured we revisited on Bastille day 2012.
    We found our perfect spot the day before and set up at 1700 with our picnic, umbrellas and ponchos.
    It was my first time shooting fireworks so I was anxious yet excited of the outcome, the music kicked in and the fireworks began. The atmosphere was incredible and matched the "disco" theme with perfection.
    My only aim was to capture the Eiffel tower glowing in the night sky surrounded in beautiful fireworks, these are my results.
