Paris

In November 2006 I headed along to the French Perl Workshop to give a talk. As part of the arrangements for this, I was to have a day being a tourist in Paris.

Pompidou

The Pompidou houses a whole load of modern art, much of it really good and much of it really weird. You aren't allowed to photograph any of that, but the build is five stories high and quite interesting in itself, meaning you can take some good shots looking over some Paris from it.

Eiffel Tower

I went all the way up to the top, which isn't really scary at all to the second level on the funicular, but the glass lift that takes you right up to the top is slightly hair-raising! The view on the way up is awesome, however. With a mixture of planning and good fortune, I made it to the top just in time to see the sun set, and enjoyed taking some nice photographs up there. I love photographing sunsets. (Note: I like a lot of these photos, even though many are similar. But it's really hard to think of good captions for 'em. ;-))
