Twosday Tuesday: The Eiffel Tower, Cross-ed

Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, which incidentally just celebrated its 125th year, is one of the most recognized structures in the world. It’s one of the most photographed, too, so how do you make your shots of the Eiffel stand out? By taking unconventional ones, of course! While these two here aren’t identical in terms of appearance, they were taken with the same concept in mind; hence, they’re our featured pair of the week!
