I took this photo on my very first day in Paris. I was still homeless at the time and had to crash at my friend's place. After sleeping for what felt like an eternity, I got my camera and went out of the house. This is the first sight of the Eiffel Tower that I saw, around the Boissière Metro. The weather was cold but the sunlight was warm and inviting, and I felt a sense of overwhelming wonder. The great thing about Paris is that French people like straight lines, so all of their streets and avenues are straight-shot roads that always lead you to some place crowded and interesting. As for the Eiffel Tower, to be honest it looks like a piece of concrete trash to me in day time. But at night, when the lights are lit up, it's the most beautiful thing there is in this marvel of a city.
I can believe that, definitely, though it's still a bit surprising. Very interesting!
Haha, thanks YinofYang. Most Parisians that I talk to are actually very nonchalant about the Tower. A lot of people have never even been to the top of the tower even though they've lived there their entire lives. It's just the tourists that are fascinated with it.
Bahahahaha! I'm sorry, the whole "piece of concrete trash" is so honest and refreshing. Thank you for sharing. Love it so far. :)
