Tour Eiffel Dame de Fer The Iron Lady

Tour Eiffel Dame de Fer The Iron Lady

black and white photographs

I remember being pulled up by an American photographer who runs “Fine Art” workshops in Paris for having presented photos of known tourist spots as if it was a crime against artistry ! I suspect it was felt to be undignified of a true photographer to take pictures of attractions, that’s the job of the happy holiday snappers ! How could I stoop so low ? Well I’ve done it again. Paris is many things and the Dame de Fer is one of them. These were all taken in the course of a short stroll on April 4 2015. You can see them as a slide show by clicking on any photograph.

Now that I live in the England, it amuses me that the nickname  “Iron Lady” refers in the UK to Margaret Thatcher. I know which Dame de Fer I prefer!

 The final one was captured digitally in August 2009. As for the first set on film, my guess is late 80s ?

These black and white photographs of a Northumberland beach function well together as a set but each one can exist on its own.
