Eiffel tower from the metro

This was a lucky shot. I was in a Paris metro chatting away with my friend when the wagon slipped above ground. I quickly grabbed my camera and tried to capture the view. The autofocus did its job and fortunately the Eiffel tower got into the frame, top to bottom, right before it disappeared again a fraction of a second later.

This is not a new picture on this site by any means as these two have been peering out of you screens every time you visited this modest corner on the mighty internet. I caught this in Paris by the famous Sacré-Cœur basilica. This is one of my few pics that I actually really like but you probably have guessed it by now as it always hangs above all the others. This is also the first of my pics that I ever saw in print and its copy now hangs in the library at my university.
