Probably a very obvious choice, given that the Eiffel Tower is primarily a structure of metal beams crisscrossing each other at various angles. The Eiffel Tower does not need any introduction. We pretty much spent a good half of the day going all the way up. I often thought the Eiffel Tower was another romantic representation of Paris. Maybe I am the only one who thought like that. But, quite frankly, looking at the science that went in to creating the structure erased any romantic notions. The machinery that hauls you up and down, the names of all the famous scientists along the rim of the tower itself, the amount of metal all around – a sort of engineering art. But romantic? Not sure.
Below are a few shots accentuating the angular nature of this structure in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge of 21st November 2014, for which the theme is Angular.
