While the image of the Eiffel tower is obviously from the bottom, the image from in the tower is only from the first observation level or, perhaps, the second. If I remember correctly, this image of Sacré-Cœur is from the top.

I dearly love Paris and this image, or any of the others I have, makes me want to hop on a train and go there. Like now. Unfortunately I don't have the time to go at the moment so maybe I'll just watch Midnight in Paris or Charade. As far as that movie myth about every window in Paris having a view of the tower, it's total crap. Our hotel, over near Montmartre, had shit-all for a view. Nice enough place but certainly no Eiffel Tower view.

Little known fact: even though the tower is quite tall, it's painted with in three different shades - darkest at the bottom, lightest at the top - to "enhance the impression of height". Those crafty Parisians.

My other photos from Paris can be found in the gallery.
