Paris in Beautiful Black and White: The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower or La Tour Eiffel, is the most prominent landmark and tourist destinations in Paris…it seemed only right to honor it with my Diana Mini and some Ilford black-and-white film.

I love Paris. The first time I visited, I was in high school and my favorite memory was of visiting the Eiffel Tower, looking up at it in amazement wondering how anything could be so tall and then looking down from it, and wondering how anyone could be so high up (I was young, I hadn’t traveled much…it was pretty amazing!)

When we visited again last year, I knew that I had to capture the Eiffel Tower with my cameras and black-and-white seemed the perfect way to capture its famous silhouette against the skyline.

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
