Lacy Ironwork of Eiffel Tower

Title: "Lacy Ironwork of Eiffel Tower"

The open-lattice wrought iron of the Eiffel tower looks surprisingly lacy and delicate when seen up-close. If you click on the image, above, you will see what I mean.

Unlike novelist Guy de Maupassant, I love the Eiffel Tower and have yet to grow tired of it. (Monsieur de Maupassant, who claimed to hate the Eiffel Tower, is said to have eaten lunch in the tower every day. When asked why, he replied that it was the one place in the city where he could not see the "horrid" structure. — via Wikipedia).

While I have not eaten lunch in the Eiffel Tower, I would be happy to do so. Not to avoid the tower, but to enjoy the fabulous view!
