La Tour Eiffel

The Eiffel Tower is no stranger to this blog. It might be the monument that shows up most often in my posts about Paris. I have not done the research to confirm that. The photo is taken from the top of the Tour Montparnasse. This was before they had installed plexiglass barriers around the rooftop observation platform. I haven't been up there since they did that.

The Eiffel Tower, looking up the avenue de Saxe and the Champ de Mars. The Ecole Militaire and UNESCO headquarters are visible in the center.
Digitized color slide, Paris, early 1990s (I think).

Our current weather is sunny, dry, and almost hot. We're planning some more work in the vegetable garden today in advance of setting out seedlings. It will need to cool off a little before we do that. Yesterday I did a little indoor paint project that I've been putting off for a while. It feels good to have it finally done.


  1. Really enjoying both your vintage (digitized) slides and Ken's night photos. Seeing this slide of the tower and all of her Haussmannian neighboring blocks makes me think that if Lego has not already made a set to copy this view, they should definitely do so. Kiwi

  2. Many UFB (Unidentified Flying Birds), probably pigeons, in the Paris sky. I agree to what Kiwi says.

  3. I hope the tiller works well for you!

  4. Great shot. Love all the angled streets and creamy colored buildings.

  5. mitch, :)

    kiwi, glad you're enjoying them!

    chm, I don't see them...

    judy, thanks. It's definitely lighter than the old one.

    bettyann, :)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
