Church of Eiffel


This is my 400th posting, apparently, and it's nice that Lady E is looking in on it, I think.

A curious shot, admittedly, but somewhat symbolic. The tower itself was a shock for many, so untraditional and violently industrial that it was, similar to the shock of the Louvre pyramid in a later era...

I like the modern cross in the form of an aerial in the middle, with the sun balancing the tower and the whole thing viewed through a sort of mesh, almost like a confessional grill, as I offer my thanks to our Lady of Eiffel in about as close as I'll come to a conventional religious experience. Next service, same time tomorrow evening, wherever you are!

Hi Lady M.
This shot was taken from... Montmartre! Just down from the front of the basilique, through a wire fence as the sun set (obviously!). Glad you like it. When are you back in Paris?
