La Tour Eiffel



La Tour Eiffel


I cannot count the number of photos I have taken of the Eiffel Tower, 
but it still takes my breath away like I am seeing it for the first time.


I have been to places where the hype exceeded the excitement of actually being there, 
but the Eiffel Tower marks the landscape with golden light 
as I gasp yet again and hold my breath to take the shot.

Genie... I can see it very, very clear in this image: When knowledge, effort, wisdom, patience and amazement are close to a prodigy, only one thing comes out: a beauty that elevates the spirit. Here is the proof in gold and blue!.

Congrats Genie! Thank you very much, for sharing the next million photos of Tower Eiffel. d(:-D)

I have to laugh because every time I see the tower I think of the hot mustard I encountered on the elevator coming down from my first visit. The elevator was jammed packed with people and it was the first time I had ever encountered "hot" mustard. This was NOT a pretty picture :-)

So beautiful Genie, the ET is the belle of the ball every night, a super fab image.

It is a magnificent structure, and it's probably something that one can never tire of.

Wonderful shot, Genie!

I never, ever, ever tire of the Tower. And I have no desire to go up IN it, because then I couldn't SEE it! (Well, there are a couple of other reasons, too!). This photo is stunning. In fact, it took MY breath away!

I'm in total agreement. I couldn't have described that feeling any better.

The Eiffel Tower never disappoints and for me too, it just takes my breath away!

What an incredible photo! Great composition and a perfectly colored blue sky to complement it all.
