Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot -- Landmark Status

La Tour Eiffel in February 2004 on my first trip to Paris. My daughter was there on business. I tagged along. Look at the flowers blooming. Only someone who has spent many Februarys in Chicago can appreciate the fleurs. Look how huge the infrastructure of the tower is. Pictures usually don't give you any kind of perspective on its enormous size.

Imagine a winter climate where flowers bloom in February...

This proves that Monsieur Eiffel could have stopped with that first landing, and still had a damn impressive structure.
