The Eiffel Tower

I’m just back from a 10 day stay in Paris. I got very lucky on the weather; last weekend was just lovely there!

The prime icon of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, is unavoidable, and is nowadays even more conspicuous at night as they frequently turn on flashing lights all up and down the tower. But what I find most interesting about the site is at the base – the beams of iron meeting the earth at a severe angle, creating a powerful image of tension.
