Iconic Image

My favorite photos of places generally tend to be the scenes that capture a small detail, rather than the famous buildings and sights that we visit. But I can't help but include a photo or two of the Eiffel Tower. It's been done, and re-done, and done some more... but there is more beauty in this structure than I expected. It draws you to it, and it's no wonder that it's become the symbol of Paris. You have to see it just once, for yourself, to understand.

I couldn't decide on this one though, the warm colors of the night lights or the classic black and white. What do you think?

  1. I love the first one! The angle is just perfect and I have an emotional reaction to the color photo that I don't have with the B&W. I was in Paris 40 years ago. I wonder if I have a photo. Those were the days of slides, and I'm not even sure where they are. I would so like to go back.


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
