Curly Queues at the Eiffel Tower

In Paris, the Eiffel Tower attracts nearly seven million visitors a year. Here, lines form and fluctuate beneath La Dame de Fer, or “the iron lady,” an iconic fixture in the city for more than 125 years. Your shot member Graham de Lacy, in Paris for the first time, took a few shots of the city at the top, “as one does.” He saw the lines on the way to the restaurant on the first level. “They reminded me of ants,” he writes. “I found the exact center point, as I wanted the shot perfectly symmetrical. Fortunately, I had a wide-angle lens to capture the moment … It was very monochromatic, and in my head I always knew it was going to be in black and white.”
