Eiffel Up

Original Photo by SD
A friend of mine was in Paris a few months ago.  She brought back some images of the Eiffel Tower in different lights and from different angles.  


I like the point of view captured here in particular.  I almost feel dizzy from tilting my head back as I imagine taking in this view with my own eyes.  It is an image that shows off the lines of construction, the symmetry and towering achievement of this Paris landmark. 

I dug for color in this image and downplayed any distracting details that might get in the way of appreciating the delicate lacelike grid of support that makes up this structure. I think the finished pixograph highlights the giddy personal perspective and old fashioned wonder of sightseeing in Paris.
