There are not only cargo ships in this huge harbor. The “Transat Jacques Vabre” is one of the great sailing boats races in the world and it starts in le Havre. On the eve of departure, there is a great show where all the boats are presented to the public. It looked photographically interesting, but conveying this atmosphere of intense preparation on one flat surface was not so easy for me. And I am not sure this shot translates the feeling. But I had never seen the harbor with so many illuminations. The perspective was tempting and I was at the limit of the possibilities of my faithful Leica.
