Way Too Many Pictures of a Tower

DSC_9310It was sunset as we approached The Eiffel Tower on the 4th of July.  The oldest con game in the world is still in play…a shell game.  Ah… he spotted me taking his picture!  No, I don’t want to play!

Really, who can resist the charms of this structure?  I spent a lot of time looking at the patterns in the construction earlier this year when I drew a picture that was meant to express springtime in Paris.

One of the corners from the inside. The clouds were perfect!

Looking straight up from the center of the tower.  Wow.

We loved how it was like a big night picnic on the Champs du Mars. So many people enjoying the evening with little picnics. People selling souvenirs, guys selling bottles of wine, families, young people. It seemed like there were a lot of locals enjoying it as well as out-of-towners and world travelers.

We took pix from just about every angle during the three days we were in Paris. Even from the water, on our boat tour of the Seine.

It’s just terrific that the city has not grown up to obscure this and other structures that define the Parisian skyline.
