The original !

Posted by
Franz (Baden, Austria) on 14 January 2018 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

This is the one and only, the true and genuine Eiffel Tower in Paris!
No matter how often it has been copied, no copy comes close to the original, mostly because of the incomparable setting.
The golden statues on the left belong to the Palais de Chaillot, from whose terrace there is a fantastic view of the Tower.

Nicely composed, Franz. The color of the statues matches the color of the tower. Certainly an original composition.

Très beau, une douce heure bleue très bien capturée. Je ne sais si tu te souviendras de moi, je postais sur A3 il y a quelques années et en partant j'ai perdu quelques contacts en route.

This is a fine composition and I know this place well as well. I like the perspective of the statues leading towards the tower. If we ever visit Paris again, this is one location that I would like to spend more time at.
