Eiffel at Night

Finding new and innovative ways to photograph the Eiffel Tower is a huge challenge. So many photographs have been taken by so many people in so many creative ways that new angles are nearly impossible. So, I set out late one evening in the spring of 2012 during a visit to Paris to find a new angle and a new way to present the tower. I started from far away and kept moving closer, trying to find a new vantage point.  I finally settled on this one as the most different perspective I could find. Most people shoot the tower from afar but not many photographers take a close-up view. In addition, shooting Eiffel at night has its own set of challenges including people, lighting and perspective. The combination of the lights and the close-up view made this my favorite. Of course, there is symmetry as well, except for the burnt out bulb on the row of lights at the bottom…
