From Paris, 2009, when I was following the Tour de France into the city from the Alps. I was so fixated on shooting the Eiffel Tower that I didn’t realize until later, while reviewing my photos, that this couple was somewhat isolated and perfectly positioned to illustrate the scale of this magnificent landmark.

You can view more examples of scale in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.


  1. You’ve captured the Eiffel Tower in great proportion and scale to the people below. So hard to photo the entire tower, but you’ve found a way to capture a portion that shows its beauty.


  2. Brilliant shot ~ not sure if there is a better iconic shot of Paris. You have the romance, the Paris night and then framed by the piece of architecture that makes the city famous. Beautiful.
