Iconic Paris: That Tower

At first, it feels so far away.

It seems out of place, like someone just dropped it in the middle of a busy city.

As you get closer, it starts to look more at home.

 It is so beautiful, up close...

...and when the sun goes down... makes the perfect backdrop for a picnic.



Is it any wonder that Paris is the fourth most photographed place on earth?

  1. Well done! The first picture is my favourite.

  2. I like the sunset photo but they're all great.

  3. Driven around Paris and been under it on the Metro but never stopped off long enough to visit the place. You were lucky

  4. All the photos are wonderful. I felt like this about the Taj Mahal. The closer you got the more impressive, more beautiful and strangely more serene.

  18. To paraphrase:
    You love Paris/Why oh why do you love Paris...
    Because your heart is there.
