Today I sat down here and started messing with my pictures of the Eiffel Tower.  How many pictures are taken of the Eiffel Tower in a year?  I would hate to guess but if I had to, I would imagine it would be around a gazillion.  I, myself, am guilty of taking about 300 or so.  OK.  I exaggerate.  I probably took only 250.  But all of them are snapshots!  None of them are particularly good.  That’s pretty disappointing because the Eiffel Tower is just so cool.

And, get this, Greg and I didn’t even go up in it…something I really regret… but there just wasn’t enough time.  And I didn’t get to see it at night.  How nuts is that??  But I will say that I was so beat by the time we got back to our hotel at night that doing one more thing would have probably killed me.  Still!  If we get to go back to Paris some day, I will go up in the Eiffel Tower and I will make sure I get to see it at night.  AND I will carry on with ordering the cheese plate for dessert.  I don't care what anybody says.

Meanwhile, I have all these mediocre pics of the Eiffel Tower.  I just couldn’t leave them alone.  So here is my take on what is probably the most photographed structure in the whole, wide world.

okay the first one grabbed me and was going to be my favorite. but then the b&w screamed it wanted to be. but the last one was the icing on the cheese plate... i think it wins.
