Towering

Tour St-Jacques and Napoleon's Victory Column, Place du Chatelet, Paris Place du Chatelet, Paris ~ October 17, 2008

The beautiful Gothic Tour St-Jacques (left) and Napoleon's Victory Column. Here you can find more pix of the tower and a little explanation. You'll need to scroll when you get there, but it should be painless.

Don't laugh: a long, long time ago, I was supposed to meet a friend at Notre-Dame. That was waaaay before mobile phones. We never did meet up. I was waiting at Notre-Dame and she was waiting... at the foot of Saint-Jacques tower ;-))
2008 was a good year, they had just finished restoring it!

Wonderful shot. I lived in France for 8 years, 3 of them in the Paris region. I still miss it. :)

This is a lovely photograph. I like the gilded statues no matter how high up they are.
