Parist to the southwest from Arc de Triomphe | To me, the Eiffel Tower seems like the worst way to see Paris. Why remove the city’s greatest landmark from your vantage point in order to find an above-the-city perspective? The Arc de Triomphe’s roof, 164 feet (50 meters) above street-level serves as a magnificent stage for photographing La Ville-Lumière. This photo, from a point-and-shoot Canon SX120 IS, keeps the city’s anchor in frame. The white wall of clouds almost acts as a curtain with blue haze separating the foreground from the photo’s background. The hint of a pastel sky pays homage to Rococo.
