La Tour Eiffel - disappearing act


So the day was not filled with sun...
A low ceiling obscured the uppper floors of buildings, and
gave a mysterious look to La Tour


La Tour Eiffel

I *love* it. It looks like God is erasing the Eiffel Tower.

Malyss said...

It gives us an idea about how the tower was looking like during the time it was built!

Gringo said...

Nice shot Genie, captures the mood! Have a nice day...

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

What a coincidence! I have an identical photo ;-)

Isn't it amazing how the tower always looks fantastic no matter the weather?

Shell Sherree said...

You have me imagining what it was like watching her being built, Genie!

J'aime bien lorsqu'elle est comme ça...
Bonne journée,

To see a half Eiffeltower is very unusual.

It doesn't matter. I don't care. The Tower is beautiful always, always.

It reminds me of Jack's beanstalk!

Wonderfully moody!

That reminds me of the first time I visited Neuschwanstein castle. It was so foggy you literally couldn't see the exterior, or even your hand in front of your face, let alone the gorgeous hills and scenery. It was really comical. Fortunately I did make it back a few more times! Great photo:)

SRQ said...

Oooh la la! Je l'aime. I hope you're getting along well with your new addition from Brattcat. Would it be odd to call it Brattcat?

C'est la même météo de Lux, en ce moment il y a beaucoup de brouillard!
Et bravo, la photo est superbe!

It's as if the top is gone! I love the way the mist has taken the top off. It does give it a mysterious look.

I really like this photo!

Anne said...

Lovely! as if the tower goes up and up out of sight...

louciao said...

Even cloudy weather can't dull the charms of this iconic tower.

Julie said...

In all my visits, I have not experienced Paris like this. A couple of times rainly, more times overcast, but mostly sunny.

I must vary the time of year that I visit.

Amanda said...

fantastic image, genie. how does one say 'fog' in french? ;-)

this is Belgium said...

very special ! bravo !!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

The clouds accentuate the height of the tower.
Warm regards

Loree said...

I love that. It looks so mysterious.

Alexa said...

Amanda -- the fog is la brouillard. And la tour is beautiful, meme dans la brouillard. Great shot, Genie!

Starman said...

November is not an ideal time to be in Paris, though some people may say any time is an ideal time.

Jack said...

Such symbolism. Leaving Tour Eiffel unfinished so you will return. Or, taking part of Paris back with you. Or, . . .

Randy said...

What a wonderful photo. I'm jealous.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

La Tour is always imposing and magnificent. The low clouds emphasized the height and all that was missing this day.

Jack, you are right on both counts. I am never finished with Paris, and I always take a part of Paris home with me in my heart and in my photos.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Bises,
Genie

I think strange weather and Europe just go hand-in-hand. Love this photo though.

I've missed your blog Genie.
