Dear Shaded Viewers,

It is always an internal debate for me, do I walk outside my door on the 14 July… actually I used to feel the same when I lived in the West Village and it was Halloween, too many people invading my neighborhood. None the less,  I decided to go watch the fireworks  with my friend Dragos Olea.

Johnny Haliday was giving a free concert in the park before the fireworks, I would have loved to have missed it but that was impossible. Dragos and I were thinking that if the city of Paris gave the fireworks over to a few artists they could be a lot more spectacular, that said….
