a journey for photo knowledge

In awe of the Eiffel.

As I’ve shared with others, the Eiffel Tower seems cliche in photos and videos. It’s not until you see this awesome structure face to face that you fully understand and appreciate the marvel that it is. I first saw it on our introductory bus tour – from the 2nd floor of the bus. On our last full day in Paris, our group of seven gathered – with wine, cheese and bread – at the Eiffel. It was absolutely wonderful. People laughing. Relaxing. Enjoying time together. No hustle and bustle to be heard. And after two hours, with my back to the Tower, I heard a loud gasp from the crowd. I had missed the moment the lights on the Eiffel were turned on. But my camera didn’t miss the moment – well, a few moments later.
