Eiffel Tower

When I saw Google’s Doodle for today, which said “Google celebrates the 126th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower opening its doors to the public for the first time” , it reminded me of my trip to Paris, even though I didn’t manage to get time to climb that tower. May be next time. It’s a beautiful structure to photograph, especially during that night with the full moon in the background. Here are some of my photographs of that ‘the enormous metallic structure which is now a globally recognized, iconic piece of architecture

Shadowing the Eiffel Tower

1-IMG_7175

Yesterday night, I was toying with my camera and thought of trying out one of my favorite past times with photography- shadows and images with light/candle. I had this small pocket light with which I was trying out shadows of various objects but the one that I really wanted to capture was that of this Eiffel Tower’s which I had got from Paris. I had first taken the below one, then realized that the word Paris wasn’t shown even though it had the shadow a little more clear with the meshes in it. So changed the focus a little bit and took the above one.
Which one looks better, if at all?

WPC : Light

I know I reused my existing Welcome page for this week’s Photo Challenge: Light , so I couldn’t resist posting one more with another of my favorite photos from my Europe and UK Tour of this year. I just remember the day as it was yesterday. It is something I will never forget, to see the Eiffel Tower in all its glory with a bright moon shining ahead. A Dream come true and well worth the money spent 🙂my favorite shot
