Eiffel Tower playing hide and seek

I wasn’t sure it was really worth it to post this photo, as there are already hundred of amazing pics of the Eiffel Tower, but at last I decided to post it anyway! I like how it seems to be in the middle of a park, hidden beside those bright green spring trees. It was took with a digital camera so unfortunately the quality is very low…
Did you know that at first the Eiffel Tower was supposed to be destroyed, as it was built for the Universal Exposition of 1889? Good thing Paris decided to keep it because nowadays, it is the most visited monument in the world with a charge for entry, and it welcomes almost 7billion visitors per year.
