weekly photo challenge – one shot, two ways, II

this  week will I have two entries to this challenge …. the first one (yesterday) is from my favorite city; Chicago … while this one is from the city that I never agreed with, even if our relationship has improved; Paris.

Why I have done this second entry – is because the the photo from underneath the Eiffel Tower is one of my favorite shots. Good enough reason, in my book *smile

    • Thank you so much – when I had posted my first entry yesterday did I recall those two photos, so I just did another post.
      I love this kind of Paris Cafe music too.
      Have problems just now that I can’t sit for a longer period of time – so I can only post short post for the moment. *smile So photo challenges are perfect.
      Thank you for always being such a fantastic support to me.

    • Dia, the same to you …. yes, it’s one of my favorite shots – and I have posted it before, but I want to show off again.
      The more I look at it the more details I see. Yes, I think it looks lace.

  3. Of course the first photo is postcard perfect but am glad you showed the second one. I’ve never been up close during the day only at night when I brought my Mom at the Tower for a sunset dinner and I never paid much attention to the details. Now I could appreciate it. Thank you!

    • Bebs, thanks … yes, the first photo came out great too – not that common that the tower catched from the backside – but I love all the fountains in the front. Also the street is named after our kings grand-grandpa. Av. Gustave V de Suède

    • Have been in Paris so many time through my work and – it’s a city that don’t like their visitors – expensive and you never know what you get for your money. Beautiful city, but what about a smile when it takes our money ????

  4. I just saw your Tour Eiffel shots. Gorgeous! I love the iron work you captured. So crisp, and so very Paris. 🙂 I also wanted to mention that I’ve been enjoying the music accompaniment to your posts! Great idea! 🙂

    • Josette, sorry I have missed your comment … I started added music to my post about a year ago .. and it has become my trademark. It takes a bit longer to do the posts because I have to look for music that relate to the post.
      And it’s music I love myself.
      That iron-shot is one of my favorite photos – it came out so good, but I was a bit dizzy looking up from quite a time before I got a good photo and the sun was in the way too.
      Yes, it’s very Paris – a truly beautiful city.

    • Yes, the second shot is a winner … and there was a bit of work behind it to get it right.
      Yes, I love accordion a la France – I call it French Cafe music.

  5. Both are awesome shots, but yes, I agree that the second is the best. I love photos that should architectural details like that. They have their own beauty as a segment of the whole.
    Beautiful!

    • Jeff, thank you so much – the first one is okay – very much postcard view, but it’s not very often that photos of the tower is taken from that side, backside -but the most beautiful. From l’Esplanade du Trocadéro. The second one if one of my favorite.

  7. Brilliant shots, both Viveka! And yes,the perfect reason to post another set. I like the second one too, the fretwork does resemble lace 🙂

    • You gave me a very nice comment last time I used it for a challenge .. think it was in my first entry.
      I really like it … myself and thinking about blowing it up and exchange it for one of the framed photos I had for years now.

    • Paris is a beautiful city – very expensive and you never know what you will get for your money – Paris don’t like their visitors that they more or less live on – they don’t smile and the service is bad … even if it has improved.
      Restaurants are like playing Russian Roulett. Otherwise nothing wrong with Paris. *laughing
