Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

La Tour Eiffel.....


~ The tallest and most beautiful  building in Paris ~

I know many a photograph has been taken of this iconic tower
but today I decided to post this elegant lady in black and white
with a slight softening around the edges
I hope you like it

This is a beautiful image of our "lady of Paris"
I remember the very first time I saw her - I gasped and still do to this day.

I have to agree -- the first time I saw this beautiful "lady of Paris" she took my breath away and I knew it was a memory I would always treasure and some forty years later I feel exactly the same way -- even just seeing a photo! And yours is a superb photo at that! The B&W is perfect! Have a wonderful evening!

Coming from the airport in the shuttle bus, you know you've reached Paris when you see her poking herself above the landscape.

There can never be too many pictures of Monsieur Eiffel, especially looking so ethereal.
