Photographer's Note

It's hard getting a picture of the Eiffel Tower that hasn't been taken a thousand times before. However, I liked the mass of small tower against the original.

The guys selling those little towers, with the smallest for 1, are really pestering you at every step close to the tower. I had to wait until the guy was distracted by a fellow salesman before I could sneak up and get the picture without actually buying one of the souvenirs.

Also, note the ring of stars on the tower. This is because of the French presidency of the EU. I found the stars somewhat tacky. In the evenings the tower was painted in EU-blue.
