Photos: Guarding Trocadero

If you are at Trocadero, the chances are you will only be looking at Tour Eiffel from Esplanade du Trocadero, clicking pictures for posterity usually forgetting the surroundings. On both sides of the esplanade, there are several statues guarding you day in, day out. I have been on the Esplanade countless time before. I have never noticed these statues until recently. This time I decided to photograph the statues. As the sun was still waking up in the distant horizon, I could capture their silhouettes. Luckily, the city is blessed with later risers resulting in a nearly empty esplanade barring a few photography enthusiasts.

    1. Thanks. Better way is to look up a map of Paris. Then you will see how small a city this place is.

    2. Well actually I did see how small Paris was from the air on my way to Geneva from London. And guess what I was able to make out from the air? You guessed right ! The Eiffel Tower :-)

  4. The hop on hop off bus was stuck in a traffic jam at Arc de Triomphe for more than an hour and then he turns around and we were among the last few left in the bus, and he says.. get off. We had no clue where we were! That's where we found ourselves Trocadero.- as the sun was fading in a strange new place. Now I can laugh about it.
