Trocadero

There is an elevator that goes to the top of the Eiffel Tower which is 986 feet high.  Coming off the elevator you’re inside an enclosed area but a short stairway allows you to reach a platform that is outside.  This shot of  the Trocadero with the fountains in the foreground was taken from that platform. It was a windy day and the tower was moving enough that I had to increase the shutter speed to get this in focus.

The Tower

I have just returned from France in a jet lag haze with hundreds of photos to sort through, edit, and post.  I visited three areas.  Paris, Normandy, and the Loire Valley.  Each area is unique and I will share photos that are majestic or simple, happy or emotional, colorful or black and white.  Those of you that follow this blog may get tired of France and if you do please comment something like “enough of France”.  

This is taken from the Place Debilly Bridge.  I thought this bridge, far from the most beautiful in Paris, complemented the erector set nature of the Tower.
