Eiffel Tower: Elevator Machinery

Elevator Machinery

This image shows part of the Eiffel Tower elevator machinery - I never used it - I walked up :-)

Again striking red colour in amidst the drab beige. I liked the curves contrasting with the main structure which is essentially straight lines.

I am returning from the South of France today and I will catch up with the blogs I have missed

Have a great Friday.

I guess you had beautiful weather in Southern France. Really curious to see your pictures from that place. They are probably unexpected as always.

Geesh.... beautiful sight! You know that I never been to France but I have been to Tahiti, under the government of France and it is such a beautiful island... If you speak french then it should be no problem for you since french is Tahiti's national language. My mom was born and raised there. Anyway, love this photo and this one is four stars!

Lots of steel! I didn't know that the Eiffel Tower had so much red paint on it.

Wow--these look like giant wagon wheels! I love how you've caught the top arc of one and the bottom arc of the other--the curves really are nice against all the straight lines...

Hope your trip home goes smoothly...or perhaps you are home already--I'm not sure about the time difference between Texas and your neck of the woods! In any case, I'm sure it will be nice to be back home for the weekend! :)

I am enjoying your Eiffel Tower series, yet I am amazed how I never noticed such bold colours and details when I was there. Thanks for making us see it through your eyes.

When you look the tower from outside you would never guess it has so much of vibrant color in the inside, now i know what to look for when i visit Eiffel Tower ;)

I'm really blown away by all the colors in the Eiffel tower. I just thought it was a dull metal all these years. I really like your view of it.

I'm impressed that you walked up the stairs. How long did that take you?

Ian, I agree with Lara. Including the bottom of one wheel and the top of another gives this photo a sense of motion. These wheels must have been huge!

Gorgeous! The fan-shape and the red are so fun. Again, I had no idea that there was so much color in the eiffel tower. :)
