Comparing towers

Monochromia

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.

It’s time for a theme at Monochrom Madness Challenge again and it’t “repetition”.

Here we have a self-service bike rental station in Paris. Check out a bike in one station, ride to your destination and check it in at another rental station near your destination.

A few days ago, my daughter watched youtube music videos on the TV in our living room. When I came in, she was listening and watching a cover version of “Dernière Danse”  by the all-female e-string and e-piano band Amadeus. When hearing the music, I knew at once, I know that song, but with a voice. Next, she picked the original song by Indila.

One of the opening scenes in the original music video when the singer stands at a fence and looks over Paris from above the city. At once, I knew where that scene was filmed. It’s not far from the famous cathedral Sacré-Cœur on the Montmatre hill, where I took the image above. But, for this MMC I edited my image a little bit. Do you like it?
