The One Million Eiffel Tower Photos That You Will Take in Paris

10526081_10203473328305879_7760495182543161120_n Ah yes, the Eiffel Tower, Le Tour Eiffel, that big steel thing in Paris. How can you not know about it? How can you not know what it looks like? It’s as famous as the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, Pyramids of Giza. It’s iconic. Even Kendrick Lamar, straight out of Compton, has something to say about it.

“I pray my dick get big as the Eiffel Tower…so I can fuck the world for seventy-two hours” – Kendrick Lamar

So anyway, (I swear that there is a point to this post) like all famous landmarks, you can’t not take a million pictures of it. Selfies, panoramas, close ups, cropped, sunset shots, night shots and all kinds of photo angles thereafter. I first caught a glimpse of the Eiffel from the boat while taking a river cruise. Not to exaggerate but I felt like squealing. There was just something unreal about finally seeing it, getting closer to its majestic glory until that moment when you are standing under all that steel. Made me excited and giddy and of course trigger happy. Did you know that it is SO difficult to get the whole tower in the freakin’ frame? You have to go across the city to take a photo of it. And it was damn cold that day too…Didn’t stop me though!

Enough rambling, scroll down so you can get a picture of what I’m talking about. Haha, get the picture…get it? Pun? No? Right…I tried. Okay I lied, I didn’t take a million photos but well it was damn close.

In the daytime the tower shines silver. Once the sun sets, the color changes into a burnished gold. When dusk settles, the tower sparkles in the night sky. That’s when Le Tour Eiffel truly becomes the symbol of the City of Lights. Ah, l’amour.
