Eiffel Tower in the mist part II!


Let's start the week from anoter riverside point of view. I took it Saturday evening on a way back from a dinner party in the 15th, from the Pont Mirabeau bridge (this time I remember the bridge I was on!). There is not much to add, is there?

  2. When I was there a few weeks ago, she had her head in the mist... She is so elusive and I love this night shot, Eric!

  6. Once again I'm reminded of the book of woodblock prints of "The Thirty-six Views of the Eiffel Tower" by Henri Riviére, 1902. Here is the link: http://www.artsmia.org/bonjour-japon/ The location of the view in each print is labeled.

    Fun project with all your spare time? (Hah!) Try to recreate Riviére's views with photos. You may be able to publish it.

  13. Out-of-Grid Eric:

    I start to share your passion for Turkey. And I even tried one of those grape shisha(s)

    On another note, do you have any idea on background music in making macarons (animoto)? Very sexy tunes to dance to.

    I never know you could be *that* hip!! Hehehe...

  17. Great photo Eric, what happens when the top of 'la tour' is shrouded in cloud? I presume it's closed to the public?

  19. As my office is on the left bank, between Pont Mirabeau and Pont de Grenelle (i.e. just a few hundred meters from were you took this photo, Eric !), this is the view I have every evening when I drive back home...
    ... but I've never been able to take such a great shot !!!

    Wish I was there there to smell the air and hear the sounds

    N'importe quoi !!

  22. Pourquoi "n'importe quoi" ? ;-)
    Le problème, c'est qu'en voiture, je ne peux pas m'arrêter, alors mes tentatives de photos sont toutes floues !!!

  23. This is incredible, Eric. If I passed this on my way home from work, I'd burst into tears each evening.

  24. I'm with you, Suzy. Absolutely lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Thib, parce que je suis sûr que tu peux faire la même !

    @ET Suzy LOL (sorry, I could not help it!) You know, the sad part is that you get used to it...

  26. @Keats. The music is by Oren Hadar it's called 42 dollars. I love it!

    @Dermo. "what happens when the top of 'la tour' is shrouded in cloud? I" Interesting question... To which I don't have the answer!
