I took this image on a rainy day during my second trip to Paris.
Here we have a modern tower representing the modern capital of France: office buildings made of concrete, glass and steel.
In the background you can see the Eiffel tower, built from 1887-1889 for the World Exhibition as a memorial landmark for the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.
At that time, it was the highest building on earth. 324m of pure iron. Really a world wonder. Until, in 1930 the Chrysler Building in New York took over the label “highest building of the world”.
More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
