Photograph by Oliver Kremer, National Geographic Your Shot
While preparing for a tough business week in Paris, IT professional Oliver Kremer decided to take a walk through the city for a boost of energy. “On the Pont Alexandre III, I rested for a while watching the Eiffel Tower cast this fantastic light on the foggy sky. I couldn’t stop watching it.” It took more than an hour to capture the photo at the precise time that the tower’s lights pointed toward the sculptures on the bridge.
For Kremer, it was a life-changing moment. “I’ve quit my well-paid job to start all over and create a photography business, hoping that I’m able to make a living for my family and me. One of the first things I did was to pull out this very special photograph from my archives and share it with the community—it was the ignition for the move I made.”
Kremer’s picture was one of 19 selected for the final story in the I Heart My City assignment.

The Lemon Festival (or Fête du Citron® in French) usually takes place between mid-February until March, in Menton, a place in Alpes-Maritimes, situated in the beautiful area of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France. The lemon has become Menton’s symbol, routed in old local traditions with the new motto “My City is a Garden”.
This is one of the largest festivals in the South of France (after the Carnival of Nice), attracting over 250,000 visitors and well, just 145 tonnes of lemons and oranges.
The festival has almost always been themed, starting up with the cartoon world in the 90’s: Disney, or Tin Tin, Pinocchio and moving onto the countries of the world in 2005. Spain took the debut theme, followed by Brazil and India. In 2010 the theme is centred around world music, as if the amazing colours were not enough for a spectacle.
Just for the record… there are tens of types of flavoursome and fragrant citrus fruits: oranges, lemons, pomelo, grapefruit, limes, orangelo, tangelo, tangerines, clemenvillas, clementines, etrog, blood orange, kaffir limes, mandarines, mineolas, kumquat.
