Tour Eiffel

I've been walking in the neighborhood every morning to get some exercise, and I was thrilled one day when I saw this:

To date, this is my favorite view of the Eiffel Tower, mostly because it takes you by surprise, and also because it shows the crazy juxtaposition of the amazing historic architecture in Paris with what most Parisians consider the ugly Tour Eiffel.

I guess I must be a true ugly American, because I actually find it industrial, strange, and beautiful.
