How very cool! You always see close-up shots, but I like that you can see the whole structure. It's such an interesting tower.

I cannot imagine the Eiffel Tower being an "everyday" sight. :-) It's lovely n the distance, isn't it?

J'espere que tu n'es pas au volant car le feu est vert :) Vu comme ca Versailles ne semble pas tres loin de la Tour Eiffel.
Bon week end de Paques !!

How very interesting! I would enjoy passing it casually on my regular car trip around the city!

What a fine panorama!
This reminds «Louis» of the famous view of the Chartres cathedral rising above the wheat fields.

It's strange to see her like that, with street lights and rosd signs.

Dir auch frohe Ostern !
Je suppose qu'il y a aussi des cloches chez vous ? (lol)

In the seeming mundane-- wonderful shots are found!

This is wonderful! I've never been to Versailles, and I haven't seen the city from this angle. There's a green light. I wonder who's driving :)

J'entends d'ici les klaxons parce que tu traines à prendre des photos au feu!Ü
On a beau l'avoir vue des centaines de fois, la Tour Eiffel provoque toujours une émotion quand on l'aperçoit pour de vrai quelque part..
Bon week-end de Pâques ! (Ici, il a commencé sous la pluie, je rêve!!)

A new perspective for me!

Sharon said...

I like this. It's a view we tourists never see!

I think I have to lend you my bumper sticker that says "I brake for photo ops."

Awesome view---Modern meets mystery. MB

An unusual view of the tower.

Explanatory note: this photo is slightly zoomed in and I was actually waiting in the right lane to go towards Versailles. In the right lane the light was RED! ;-)

Note explicative : cette photo est légèrement zoomée, j'étais en fait dans la file de droite, direction Versailles et le feu de la file de droite était... ROUGE ! ;-)
