Eiffel Tower across La Seine
Did you think it was the ET you saw in a movie? No, it’s just the Eiffel Tower I took a couple of months ago. Besides, who would ever believe that ET’s exist here on earth.
It was quite foggy and a gray day so it was perfect to capture the Eiffel Tower across the la Seine canal. With its height of 324m, it doesn’t normally look taller like it’s touching the skies. But with the fog around that day, it looked as if it was reaching the skies, peeping through for miracles above. It was what I thought, anyway.
It seems to be saying perpetually; ‘I am the end of the nineteenth century; I am glad they built me of iron; let me rust.’ … It is like a passing fool in a crowd of the University, a buffoon in the hall; for all the things in Paris has made, it alone has neither wits nor soul.

The fog makes for an interesting shot. 🙂
Yes, I love as it hides the top of the tower.

Joy, meron kaya yun sa totoong life, hehee. Pero mabait naman sila kagaya nung sa films ba.
It looks so nice and cold there… ah how I wish the weather was like that over here. Plus, the fog does make the shot look more mysterious. 🙂

Rozie, I suggest you don’t shift from cold weather. Warm countries have it better.
Hobo, is it? Wish it goes all the way to heaven, hehee!

Definitely a romantic place for this Valentine…
Oh, wish I could be there on Valentine’s Day.
Aba at nakapunta ka na pala sa City of Love, fren. 🙂 Ako hanggang ngayon nangangarap pa rin. Kasi naman si KC Concepcion ang gusto kong dalhin sa ET tapos dun ako magpro=propose sa kanya. Hahaha! (Parang si Tom Cruise at katie Holmes ang drama ng lolo mo)
