Seeing Double In Paris

Paris, France                                            (Click photo to enlarge)


If you are familiar with Paris you might recognize the Eiffel Tower on the left, Les Halles, L'eglise Saint Eustache , La Defense, etc. in the middle. Now look on the right. It's the Eiffel Tower again. Sometimes reflections really amaze me.

  7. A very realistic reflection! I first saw the one on the right and thought that was the real one., then read your description.

  8. lovely shot and the reflections really add to the mystery of it. Black and white looks so great when others do it, mine not so good!!! Thanks for sharing the incredible shots you have taken, it is kind of you.

  9. c'est étrange car cette semaine j'ai fait une photo semblabe à la vôtre, ( elle sera programmé aprés le jour de l'an) c'est la même vue mais pas le même point de vue. la vôtre est interessante avec cette duplicité d'image. la photo me plait beaucoup tout autant que les autres que j'ai eu le plaisir de découvrir.

    see you soon.
    Jorge.

  11. Saw the reflection if the Eiffel Tower first, and then saw the real one. Very cleaver parallelism in your photo. Have a wonderful time in the City of Light and a happy new year.

  12. The reflection is très unique. I've seen many Eiffel Tower images and nothing like it. Even so, the architecture of the city spread out before my eyes like this, is quite thrilling and impressive! I wish I could fly out of my life and into a life behind any one of those windows for New Years Eve...

  13. Great catch there, you are I believe THE world authority on reflections photos... I was guessing that you were up in the Pompidou center somewhere, which you confirmed, but was intrigued that you put location info as Saint Merri, which is the church right next to Pompidou. La Grenouille and I got merried, errr, married in the St Merri church back in 1992, and later we came back and lived for a year in an apartment just a block from the Pompidou, the rooftop of which would be visible here, if not for the reflection part... Small world, eh ? Happy holidays James !

  15. Even in Paris, such a clear scene is not that common. I love all the buildings in the foreground. They say "Paris" to me as much as the Eiffel Tour does.

    Bonne année !
