Here's another image from our trip to Paris nearly a decade ago.
We stayed at a bed & breakfast inn within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and enjoyed spending several of our evenings walking to the Parisian landmark and trying to capture images of the lighted tower at night.
This was my attempt at being a little creative by zooming my lens as I tried capturing the image, and it ended placing first for Digital Images, Color Creative, Beginner Division in October 2015 at the Motor City Camera Club.
The Eiffel Tower, its construction and its place is Parisian history always fascinates me, and I've read several books about the subject. Here are a couple worth checking out: Eiffel's Tower: The Thrilling Story Behind Paris's Beloved Monument and the Extraordinary World's Fair That Introduced It by Jill Jonnes and Murder on the Eiffel Tower: A Victor Legris Mystery by Claude Izner (which is first in a series of mysteries, and Izner is the pen name for a pair of Parisian book-selling sisters).
