Capturing the Eiffel Tower
Posted by Christi Ginger — 24 Mar 2008
Next year, the Eiffel Tower celebrates its 120th birthday. As a part of the celebration, the famous tower will have a temporary observation deck added to the top of the structure. It will be so striking to see this iconic structure altered! Here are some illustrations from the future plans:
This has gotten me thinking about the art of photographing well-known and iconic monuments. I remember returning from Paris with 100+ boring photos of the Eiffel Tower and immediately chucking any that didn't have my friends in the foreground.
I decided to pour through JPG to find some of new takes on the famous tower. Here are some of the unique images I found:
