Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

This week theme.

Eiffel Tower

You couldn’t possibly visit Paris without visiting Eiffel Tower which has become the symbol of the City of Light that dominates the skyline.

This was the tallest man-made structure on earth to reach and exceed 1,000 feet in height until the Chrysler Building was completed in New York in 1930.
