Under the Eiffel Tower

I had the priviledge of living in southern France many years ago, but I didn’t get the chance to check out the sites of Paris until 2007 when my wife and I traveled there together. It was a great trip, with so many sites to photograph.

While visiting those sites, I found myself taking taking the same old photos that everyone who had traveled to the sites had probably taken. I decided to try looking at different perspectives of capturing these very reconizeable sites.

When we got to the Eiffel Tower, it looked fantastic; lit up against the night sky. I took the customary photos of the icon from a distance, but when I got closer, I found the perspective that would offer a unique approach.

After returning from France and reviewing the photos, I was proud of this particular shot. I entered it into the Utah State Fair and was awarded first place in the Amateur/ Architecture category. I even had it selected by Popular Photography as one of their Photos of the Day in 2011.

Finding different ways to look at things is one of the great things I enjoy about photography.
