Eiffel Tower for ABC Wednesday



It's Wednesday again and this week is the letter "E". These 2 photos of the Eiffel Tower were taken during my trip to Paris in 2004. It was my first time in Europe and we stayed 10 days in France and lived like the Parisians.

The day shot was taken from the 2nd story of a open-air tour bus as it stopped to pick up more passengers. The night shot was taken while on a boat cruise on the Seine River.

For more ABC Wednesday photos, go to the Calling All Photographers Discussion forum.

I want to have a picture of Eiffel Tower. I have never been to Europe. It is wishful thinking of mine to visit Europe. Love both shots especially the 2nd one.

Two fabulous photos, truly. It's the second Eiffel tower I have seen today, well, 2nd and 3rd I guess.lol.

Favourite is the first photo, love the angle.

Thanks Hin! I think they started lighting up the tower at night since 2000. Paris was my first and only time in Europe. It's not good to go now because of the exchange rate.

Thanks Ali! I figure the tower has been photographed so much that doing it from a different perspective would be more refreshing.

You mean the Eiffel Tower is in Paris? I thought it was in Vegas ;-)

ha ha! he said Vegas! Excellent choice with the letter E, AV, you sure make it interesting.

Digital Flower/Scott, that is the original Eiffel Tower in Paris. Hahaha! We unfortunately didn't get a chance to go to the top of the real Eiffel Tower, but we did go up to the top at the one in Vegas. The scenery is not the same. :P
