The Eiffel tower is one of the best known touristic attractions in the world and the most important iconic trademark of Paris – and it is absolutely overrated. There is nothing more boring than this 19th century piece of iron. Even climbing on top of it doesn’t make it any better, because you might have a great view over Paris, but without seeing the Eiffel tower anymore it is just stupid. Nevertheless, it’s every tourist’s duty to go see the tower. Since I’m working in Paris, I could resist to go see it for quite a long time. But after some weeks, on a freezing sunday afternoon, I finally got there. To do the tourist thing right, I took the camera with me. I tried to find some perspectives that you might not already have seen like a million and 450.000 times before. So here is what I got.
