It was a cold, snowy, foggy morning in Paris.
This photo was taken back in February on a cold weekday morning. It had snowed a little the night before and it was still on the ground in some spots. The only problem was that the temperature was hovering just above freezing. In the morning there was a thick blanket of fog covering all of Paris, so the top of the Eiffel Tower could just barely be made out. As I was walking around taking pictures there was a lone person heading off to work across the lawn. With all the fog the colors of the image are very muted, it seemed perfect to be a slightly sepia toned black and white image.
If you are interested in reading more about the Eiffel Tower, there are a couple of books you can buy:
“Eiffel’s Tower: The Thrilling Story Behind Paris’s Beloved Monument and the Extraordinary World’s Fair That Introduced It” – Gives a general history about the tower and also the world’s fair that the tower was built for.
“The Eiffel Tower” – More of a photobook of the Eiffel Tower. If you are a fan of its design, you’ll enjoy the photographs in this book.
