One Weekend, Two Shots (July 17 & 18)

So, I've decided to join others in the photography challenge and see how my skills improve with the One Weekend, Two Shots challenge.  I've been in Europe for 10 days and the shots I got were fabulous.  This first weekend was easy because I had loads of photos to choose from! Even using a new camera, I think the trip shots are rather nice.

On Saturday, we visited the Eiffel Tower. After a two-hour wait in line, we were finally on our way to the top.  This shot is taken from level one at sunset.  We actually were at the top at twilight and the view was outstanding. For this challenge, I wanted to capture the perspective to the top, instead of the view from the top.

The next day we took the night train from Paris to Florence. The kids had a blast with the triple level bunks and this shot is of those at the top level goofing off. Again a different perspective.

What a view from the ground of the tower and the kids look like they were having a blast. Great shots. I, too, am glad that you are joining in. Welcome home!

I love the smiles on the kids faces, they look like they are having the BEST TIME EVER!!!
