An abundance of lanterns and fireworks light the night sky in this Parisian scene. Revelers scramble atop roofs, balconies, bridges, and ships to join in the celebration of a warm Bastille Day, which honors the birth of the French Republic. The French constitution allows its President to pardon crimes on this day, a tradition that continues today.
