La tour grande, encore. C'est magnifique, encore.Merci.
It's on my wish list too.
I remember my first glimpse a few years ago on the train, I gasped as I saw her...my fellow traveller simply said. " Everything will be alright in Paris!" and somehow it is! xx
Je te fais une proposition, Genie: Je serai au dernier étage de la tour Eiffel, le 1er du mois prochain, à 12h30. Si tu y es aussi, c'est que tu auras très envie de me rencontrer...Rappelle-toi le film: "An affair to remember". Tu seras Deborah Kerr, et moi Cary Grant!...
I had to take a double look at the photo to realize what I was looking at. I've never seen it look like this before. Well done Genie.
Looks quite surreal. Love that image.Pam x
This is a beautiful image,I just love the subtle blue,green and grey with dashes of gold and silver......one of the best I've seen of this much loved monument.Congratulations Genie!!!Rx
One of my favorite structurs due to the history behind its architectural genesis. Your words are kind to thoughts that often leak out before I can catch them ~xox Alexandra
Fantastic picture of the Eiffeltower!! Looks a bit mysterious like this, very nice! Best greetings to you, Genie :)Marjolijn
Me too - early next summer hopefully. xx
You always seem to get the the light just right and or show up at the right time. I love the sunlight breaking through near the bottom.
beautiful! Never been there, gotta go!
Wonderful picture, Genie - looks like the moment before the storm broke...you can sense the build-up.
incroyable la tour Eifel à Paris non je rigole j'aime bien la brume à moins que se soit la polution
I love the play between the grey sky and the golden light against the iron! This is what makes Paris so magical.
This photo is just incredible. The glistening structure against the gray sky is magnificent - and tear-worthy, in fact.Thank you so much for sharing.
Bergson nailed it , "Incroyable!" She brings me to tears every time. Le sigh.V
You're such a tourist, Genie! Can you imagine that the original intent was to tear this down after the world's fair was over???
And she always manages to look good, no matter what the season. :)
What absolutely fantastic light. La Tour Eiffel is like Sydney Harbour- you never tire of looking at it, it's always special, and it has so many amazing moods. You've captured a wonderful moment in time here.
This is one of the coolest pictures of the Iron Lady, I have ever seen.
Me too can't wait. All the best + talk soonhttp://www.rivierabrides.com/
Seen thousends of times, but we never get enough of it!It's such a strong symbol..
Shelley -- Merci, mon amie..Bear -- C'est vrai!rosaria -- Keep it on your list... It was on mine for a very, very long time.Suzi -- You will be there soon, right?Richard -- Ah, je le rappelle. C'etait un bon film d'amour. Quand tu a dit? heheheAndy -- Merci. It is just like that incredible bird shot of yours... part photographer skill and lots of being in the right place at the right time and knowing to press the shutter!Bayside Rose -- It did have an almost ghostly look to it... merci!R -- Coming from the color expert, I greatly appreciate the compliment... merci, mon amie!Alexandra -- You are most kind and I agree that we are fortunate that this architectural monument has been preserved and not dismantled!Marjolijn -- Many thanks... so glad to see you here. I have missed you in your absence.Diane -- I am sure that you are counting the days, my friend!Bill -- Merci, and you are right... it is all about the light I found that day... "lucky"Mary -- Although I am sure you have seen tons of photos, you just would not believe how BIG it is in personDeborah -- I think that it may have been just at the end of a night storm as this was taken in the early morning
A really pretty photo. I too could not get enough shots of Madame Eiffel :) There were so many angles I had to take photos from - I could have spent my time in Paris just underneath that massive structure.
Bergson -- C'est la bonne lumiere! Magnifique!AA -- I agree with you... the light is amazing and it shines on incredible subjects!Sasha and Virginia -- I knew that eventually I would get some people who agree with the tear-worthy comment!Jack -- I won't deny it and I intend to capture her again and again... so glad that this was not torn down after the exhibition/fairHalcyon -- I've never seen her look bad and next winter I am going to post some incredible snow (white-out) shots that my daughter took in my absenceLouise -- Sydney Harbor is a long way from Paris, but we are talking the same language here about incredible beauty and versatility. Merci!Starman -- Wow! Thank you very much... that is the nicest thing you have ever said to me... merci, mon ami!Riviera -- I hope that you are going soon and enjoy the moment!Malyss -- You are kind to share her with "the tourists" and not make fun of our dedication to La Tour... I cannot imagine anyone from France coming to see the Statue of Liberty (merci, for that gift) and swooning over her like we do La Tour... merci, mon amie!
Loree -- I agree, and then you must go back to see her in the spring, the fall, the winter, in the rain, in the snow, ...... Well, that is where I am coming from - hah!
Wonderful shot of La Tour Genie!!! Love the lighting!
That capture of light on one side does it for me --- almost as if she's just waking up early one morning, getting herself ready for all the tourists.
Chieftess -- The lighting makes it seem closer or it did when I shot this one... merci!Harriet -- I have only been up twice and much prefer to see it from underneath or afar.
Genie -- she makes me weep too—and I can't wait to see her again next week! Love love love the way you captured the light here. Brava!
I look forward to visiting her again too! It has been too long. It's nice to hear that other people feeling so emotional about the Eiffel Tower too.
Alexa -- and I can't wait to hear all about your adventures, what you ate, what you saw, the photos (of course!)Brittany -- Merci, and there are many of us in that category!
I could never see too many images of this beautiful piece of work. I know how you feel. I had always wanted to see Georgia O'keeffes' house. The day I did I was moved to tears. Now Mable's house is another one that I have been dying to go to. Have you read her books?
I have not, Randy, but should put one on my reading list. That was an era for artists of all types. Mabel was quite the character in her day! I stayed in one of the "basic" 400 year old rooms with low arched ceilings
J´adore la Tour Eiffel! Every time I´m in Paris I check if she is still there (you never know...) and doing well. I also want her to know that I´m back to her city. I consider her as a friend.
It is the most amazing structure. I could not believe how massive it really is until I first saw it looming over the city.
What a beautiful and powerful image! I love it!It brings me to tears because after going to Paris so many times over the past six years it looks like I wont be going back for a while. :(
Vreni -- It just makes my heart go pitter-pat thinking about seeing her so soon!Carol -- Me too... nothing prepared me for that first look and after a dozen trips it still takes my breath away!Léia -- Merci, mon amie!James -- I am grieving with you... You know that we never know what life has in store... You will get back. ;-)
If your carry-on seems a bit heavy - don't check, it's me stowing away...
Such a lovely msterpiece and still stands proudly.
Kelley -- You are just too funny! Alons-y!Haddock -- Yes it is, and there are many who would be sad if it were not there today.
What a shot ! Merveilleuse photo !
I just discovered your blog. Mon dieu, what a visual feast. I can't wait to revisit Paris, the first European city I visited when I was young. Longing doesn't begin to describe how I feel about it.
