Paris, France – Eiffel Tower

La Eiffel Tower

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR

Here is a close up photo of the Eiffel Tower.   If you have been reading my blog – it is one of my most favortie sights to see in this world!  I’d say it is also one of the most photographed sights in the world as well.   I’ve walked around the tower many times looking for different angles and views.   Sometimes a close up shot works.   What is interesting about this picture is the names on the side of the tower.  I had no idea they were they until I processed this shot!    There are seventy-two names under the first balcony on each side of the tower.  They are scientists, engineers and other notable people that helped Gustave Eiffel with the tower. 

I touched up this shot with a filter from Color Efex Pro 3.0 to give it the brownish hue.  I’ll be back in Paris soon!  I am looking forward to eating my traditional crepe filled with whipped creme and chocolate right next to the tower at this cute little stand by the carousel across the street.  Enjoy!
