Lens-Artists Challenge # 92: Going Back – the Second Time Around

The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Johnbo.

Per John: “Considering the current world situation, I decided to focus my challenge to your sharing images from your previous travels rather than asking you to go out to photograph new examples to share. If you visited a favorite place more than once, how did you approach the second trip photographically? If you’ve only been somewhere once, what would you do differently the second time around?”

I’ve decided on a contrast between two visits:

PARIS, DOWN FROM UP and PARIS, UP FROM DOWN

Around 1998 or 1999 I visited Paris and made my way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. The aerial views were spectacular.

DOWN FROM UP

UP FROM DOWN

When I revisited Paris, I had no desire to make my way to the top of a 120-year old erector set. Thus, BOTTOMS UP (from the, that is):

Stay safe, be well.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

  1. That is one very famous landmark. Somehow I have the image of ascending the tower, equipped with a small bottle of red wine, a variety of cheeses, and a baguette. Then again, I guess it’s very breezy up top; perhaps not ideal for a picnic. 😅

    1. To err is human! I wondered, but being mistake-prone myself, I’m always happy to acknowledge a fellow HUMAN. It’s a good thing, as I already grabbed my camera and took a couple of shots.
