La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel Tower) is one of the truly great iconic landmarks in the world; it is one of the many things that symbolises Paris. Built as apart of the 1889 World Fair, and was only intended to be part of the Parisien skyline for 20 years; 118 years later, the 'Iron Lady' remains one of the most beautiful and recognised structures in the world. It is so recognisable through that it is a truly surreal experience the first time one experiences it in real life. It is amazing and moving to see it in person. It is no surprise that over 6 million people a year visit the Eiffel Tower each year (650+ million people have visited since it opened). Gustave Eiffel designed the Tower for the Paris World Fair of 1889 in honour of the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. The Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel) is probably one of the most photographed structures in the world; and herein lies the challenge... to try and photograph it differently. Nothing is right or wrong when photographing the Iron Lady. It has been repainted 18 times and going for its 19th in 2009-10, at 919m it was the tallest structure in Paris and was the tallest in the world for 40 years, the foundations go 15 metres below ground, it was derided and disliked by many Parisians during its construction after its intended 20 years 'life' it was to be dismantled but Gustave Eiffel had and idea to is it as a military radio tower; an idea that stopped it from being dismantled.
