As the sun diminishes Tour d’Eiffel comes alive with light to bid a good evening to all in the city of Paris. The icon was originally constructed as an attraction and entrance to the World’s Fair held in 1889. It was named after Gustave Eiffel, the man in charge of the company that engineered and constructed it. From different viewing levels visitors can view the expansive Parisian landscape as if it were an architect’s model. At 324 meters (1,063 feet) in height it still ranks as the tallest structure in Paris. It is so recognizable that throughout the world people can call out its name simply by being shown a likeness of it. Paris is a favorite city of mine and nearly every time I visit I find myself in the gravitational pull of this alluring filament in the City of Lights.
