la Tour Eiffel


How could I pass up this unusual view of la tour?? Taken from a street running alongside while we waited on the bus in the COLD!!!

Well, of course you couldn't. When in Paris, do as the ______ do. Fill in the blank -:)

Yes, Paris can be darn cold. I remember the years I lived there, when I was (more, ha) beautiful and young. I never wanted to wear a hat, tights, or even boots--needed to be ultra-chic. And yes, I caught cold a lot!

I like this photo, which shows the cold.

Great photographers take pics alike...or something such as that!!! I took almost the exact same pic of la Eiffel when we were there in November!!!

I like the way you framed the tower. Have a good time (need I add that?).

There's a remarkable harmony of color in this shot. Ah, Paris.

I know quite well this neighborhood and it's a great spot for New Year's eve fireworks...
Enjoy Virginia.

I want to go to Paris with YOU, girlfriend. This is gorgeous. You always manage to capture magic in all of your shots.

I do not think she has a bad side/angle

cold or not that's pretty hot!

Bob Crowe said...

Oh, you Francophile, you...

Harriet said...

You've done it again. Another photo that makes us all want to be in Paris with you!

Indeed, this shows the cold. It also looks as if it is WWII vintage. Interesting how la tour seems to butt right up to the building on the left, when we know it really doesn't. Good shot, Virginia!

This is the clear front runner for Photo of The Year 2010!

Even reminds me of the Eiffel in Las Vegas.

Fascinating! We have several shots taken at this exact spot...only late at night!

I'll bet you had a grand time!
