Eiffel Tower Panorama

June 19, 2012

18 iPhone shots, from the top. Sorry for all those I pushed out of the way but I think you’ll agree it was worth it.


3.8 year old Taquita Justice is big into the Eiffel Tower, since it’s “Sutro’s friend.” She walked up all seven hundred steps to the 2nd level. (I told her the 300 steps to the first level was like walking up Bernal.)

And here’s a pano from underneath:


Photosynth crazy wraparound polar pano from below:


Photosynth is an amazing pano app in its own right, and even moreso when you consider its by Microsoft. They have a spinny viewer but you need a Microsoft Live ID login, so that’s not happening soon. But do download the iPhone app.

Another Photosynth 360° of a corner brasserie when I drank 1664:


And a very necessary 1664 animated GIF.

    3.8 years old! Oy vey, I feel old… At any rate, nice to see that she’s bringing together the Germs and the Frogs through civil engineering, although one could argue that Gustave wins in terms of actually being involved in the tower that bears his name.

    Not only do I feel old, I’m jealous! I used to live in Montpellier and although I really tried to avoid going to Paname then, you make it look awesome… Have fun! Guess I’ll settle for another viewing of Exit Through The Gift Shop. :-P

    Were these taken on June 19th? My family just got back from our trip and we had 7:30pm reservations for the tower on June 19th. Crazy!
