la Grande Arche de la Defense - "Height"



2013 0521 Tues_167DSC_5586

"Height"
Theme for November 2013
City Daily Photo Blogs


Seen from the top of Arc de Triomphe the height 
of la Grande Arche de la Defense dwarfs the surrounding rooftops.  


The height restrictions for buildings 
have limited the number of towering structures and their locations.

love the tree - hate the skyscrapers - good to hear there is a limit on them.

Not your conventional Paris sky line. Caught me by surprise.

It reminds me of Oz out there at the end of the yellow brick road. (Now if they'd just dismantle the Tour Montparnasse . . .)

Again, another photo that is taken by everyone who makes the climb.
