Eiffel Tower, Paris II - French Landscape Painting

Eiffel Tower, Paris II

You say it's an absolute beauty and one of the first things you must see in Paris?  Rather, you are of the opinion that it's such an eyesore you can't stand it?  There seems to be two kinds of visitors to Paris when it comes to their opinions about the Eiffel Tower.  Whether you take one side over the other (or fall somewhere in between), wouldn't you agree that Paris wouldn't be the same without it?

Weighing 10,100 tons, soaring 324 meters tall, it is a massive structure, and I must say that getting an up-close-and-personal look at the 250,000-square-meter surface of the fine iron lattice work is awe-inspiring.

"For my part I believe that the Tower will possess its own beauty.  Are we to believe that because one is an engineer, one is not preoccupied by beauty in one's constructions, or that one does not seek to create elegance as well as solidity and durability?  Is it not true that the very conditions which give strength also conform to the hidden rules of harmony? "  -- Gustave Eiffel, designer of the Eiffel Tower

Thank you for your kind comment, Nilesh. I think this is one of the loveliest views of the Eiffel Tower, from this spot. I'm glad this painting reminded you of your recent trip to Paris.
