Giverny is a commune in the northern French department of Eure. The village is located on the "right bank" of the river Seine at its confluence with the river Epte. It lies 80 km west-northwest of Paris, in the region of Normandy. It is best known as the location of Claude Monet's garden and home.

Several American Impressionist artists also settled in Giverny, drawn by the landscapes, the overall atmosphere, and the presence of Monet. Other attractions include the Museum of Impressionism Giverny, dedicated to the history of impressionism and the Giverny art colony, and the Hôtel Baudy, which was the center of artistic life in Giverny's heyday. It is now a café and restaurant, with period decoration.

This was taken next to Musee Nat. de la Marine and Palais Chaillot in Trocadero Gardens. The name of this golden stature is “Les Oiseaux” (“The Birds” in English). Les Oiseaux was produced by Lucien Brasseur. Together with seven other statues, they were commissioned for the new construction of the Palais de Chaillot for the 1937 World Fair in Paris.

Just as the last rays of day are struggling to shine on this gilded statue, the illumination of the Tour Eiffel is about to assume duty.

The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

Constructed in 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticized by some of France's leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world.[3] The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world; 6.91 million people ascended it in 2015.

The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building, and the tallest structure in Paris. Its base is square, measuring 125 metres (410 ft) on each side. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to become the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years until the Chrysler Building in New York City was finished in 1930. Due to the addition of a broadcasting aerial at the top of the tower in 1957, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building by 5.2 metres (17 ft). Excluding transmitters, the Eiffel Tower is the second-tallest structure in France after the Millau Viaduct.

The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first and second levels. The top level's upper platform is 276 m (906 ft) above the ground – the highest observation deck accessible to the public in the European Union. Tickets can be purchased to ascend by stairs or lift (elevator) to the first and second levels. The climb from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the climb from the first level to the second. Although there is a staircase to the top level, it is usually only accessible by lift. (Sourced from Wikipedia)

This image is included in a gallery "More Cities of the World" curated by calamityjan2008.

Took this shot in a hurry, hand held, in a drizzle, in 2010. It was about 9:45 pm, shortly after having a nice seafood dinner with friends at a restaurant near-by. Looking along the Pont d'lena Bridge and above, the sky appears dark chocolate due to ambient city lights and the drizzle, far from being spectacular when compared to the reflections on the wet ground.

This image was taken next to the street sign Allée Léon Bourgeois, which is a side path to Eiffel Tower garden, using my first ever DSC. There was a bit of morning mist.
