Photographer's Note

In my quest of seeing & showing Paris differently, render well-known topics as fresh images....familiar landmarks from a not-so-common point of view....

I took this picture from under the central viaduct (viaduct is a bridge composed of several small spans) of the pont de Bir-Hakeim.

Formerly the pont de Passy, pont de Bir-Hakeim is a bridge that crosses the Seine River. The railway viaduct is supported by metal colonnades, except where it passes over the île aux Cygnes, where it rests on a masonry arch.

It is with this masonry arch that I tried to create a natural frame for the famous Eiffel Tower. On the left you can see the bronze statue called "La France Renaissante" (A resurgent France) created by Danish sculptor Holger Wendekinch.
