Paris, France – Eiffel Tower (HDR)

My favorite place in the world to visit….Paris & the Eiffel Tower!  Its been a while since my last visit, but I will be back again soon.  I have shot the tower at all times of year and different angles.  This one is a cool perspective.   Right were you meet the hop-on-hop-off buses.  So you have to get close to the fence to avoid the foot traffic.  One great thing about taking a photo of the Eiffel Tower is that about 100% of the people around you are taking pics as well…so you fit right it!!  A tripod is no problem.  People mostly honor your space.   If you ever have a chance to visit Europe….Paris would be my first option!   So much to see and do.  I still have a BIG list of places to see there.   You can also go to McDonalds and order a “Royale with Cheese”.

Here is some Royale with Cheese info from the web:     In most markets unfamiliar with imperial measurements, the Quarter Pounder is known as the Hamburger Royale or McRoyal, or variants thereof, including “Royale with Cheese”, as famously explained in the film Pulp Fiction (although one should note that in France the official name of the Quarter Pounder with Cheese is Royal Cheese). In English-speaking countries that have adopted metrication, the burger retains the Quarter Pounder name, although in the French-speaking province of Quebec it is directly translated to “Quart de Livre” and “Quarter de Livre avec fromage”. Quarterão com Queijo is used in metric Brazil, Cuarto de Libra con Queso in Spain and in Latin America, Quarter Pounder is used in Finlandand QP Cheese in Sweden In South Africa there are 2 variations, the Quarter Pounder with cheese and the Quarter Pounder Deluxe. In some Middle-Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, McDonald’s provides both a Quarter Pounder and a McRoyale burger on its menu, the McRoyale having slightly different ingredients. In Chinese markets, the Quarter Pounder is known as a “full three taels” (Chinese: 足三両) because three taels is approximately equal in weight to a quarter pound.

For some reasons I want McDonalds for lunch!   Ah the great info one can find on the web!  LOL
