Views from and of the Eiffel Tower

Still in 2007. Photos I'm enjoying seeing again and working on. The last time before September 2007 that I went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower was in 1997, with my mother and her granddaughter (my niece). That was before I had a digital camera.

The big red wheels up in the tower pull the cables that run the elevators, I believe. The observation deck at the top of the Eiffel Tower is about 275 meters (about 900 ft.) above ground level. Dieu que la terre est basse vue de là-haut.


  1. Thank you, Ken, for these amazing photos. They show the intricacies of the ossature of the Tower. Even though it is not and has never been my favorite landmark, I recognize it is an engineering feat and I admire it for that. How many million rivets where used to hold it together? Did I ever tell you I have a piece of the metal used to buil it?

  2. My favorite of all your shows! I think I've been up in the tower 3 times during my lifetime. Once in my teens, then twenties, and lastly forties.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
