Not far from the mighty Eiffel Tower, across the famous green esplanade the Champ de Mars, sits the Wall for Peace, a humble structure of glass and metal.
While it may be the city's most overlooked monument, the wall attracts a constant stream of passersby, drawn to the gleaming metal and glass panes that catch the sun.
The word "peace" is inscribed in 32 languages and 12 alphabets on the glass and 20-foot-tall metal columns standing sentries on either side.

This is unusual view of the Eiffel tower and certainly a unique perspective of this famous monument. Your POV is quite interesting with the inclusion of these least-known comumns which line up well with the the "Iron Lady" and nicely frame it. Good symmetry between the multiple FG poles and the BG tower. I would have loved to see the bottom of the Eiffel tower !
Have a nice week-end.

Ah oui, très bonne prise de vue à travers ces colonnes.
La vieille Dame semble regarder avec intérêt les diverses inscriptions.
Une photo très originale et très réussie.

probably one of the most photographed landmarks in the eworld.But first time I see the Eiffel Tower surrounded by such amazing structures.The juxtaposition looks fabulous.I love it,but I´m also curious if they´re illuminated by night?You composed the scene perfectly,even if well known,the Eifell Tower can still amaze us with something new.Great work!
Have a nice weekend

Hello May Smart choice of a ideal frame to accentuate the face of characteristic architecture. Good graphic against the blue sky with splendid sharpness. Very nice photo, with great contrast between these colors, and very good choice for POV
Very good result
