Paris, France, taken on April 22, 2011
The Eiffel Tower flashes at the beginning of every hour during the night for five minutes, and the only time that I went up the tower, I was there during one of the flashes! What an experience 😀 (See the original photo in colour.)

Here in search of the great pyramid of the Louvre but…why is it behind bars? Oh, this is just the wrong way. Gotta make a detour!

Paris is definitely not one of my favourite travel destinations, not even close, but many of my “Travel Favs” photos do include the Eiffel Tower because it makes everything feel so…delicate, even as a backdrop. Only during the night though. One must wonder here, what is the abandoned Heineken bottle doing in central Paris on this beautiful, moon-lit night?

The night I first climbed the Arc de Triomphe, the fog enshrouded Ms.Eiffel in an air of mystery and gave me the perfect chance to take this shot (using my very primitive point-and-shoot). This is my favourite view of the “City of Lights” and of course my favourite high place in the city. (No “original” colour photo this time because the original was shot in black and white.)

While I’m not a fan of Paris, I can’t deny the myriad of photo opportunities that this city offers. Ms. Eiffel is always a lovely model, but she has a competitor here, it would seem. Everything in this photo was genuine, except for one thing – can you spot it? 😉
