City of Light

Back home again with enough photos to make postings for a whole year. I’ll restrain myself, however, and for now you can see the result of my quest to capture the perfect Eiffel Tower shot. This involved waiting patiently for other tourists at the Trocadero to move away from the one spot on the balustrade that allows a symmetrical view then setting up the mini tripod. For those who appreciate such details, my small Canon PowerShot was shooting at F8.0 with a 4″ exposure. The big arc lights to the left and right were part of some exposition whose construction was in progress around the fountain.
