Dear Readers & Subscribers,
I am having problems with typepad, my blog server again. Subscribers, some of emailed me and said the photos didn't come through. Please check again, it should be fixed by now. I am not sure about today's posting and won't know till it posts later today. Sorry for any inconvenience.
It’s been a while since I ran a contest so I figured a new one was in order.
To celebrate 125th anniversary of The Eiffel Tower/La Dame de Fer (The Iron Lady, and no it’s not Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher) I’ve decided to have a contest for the most unusual Eiffel Tower photos. I will choose two winners and they will each receive a copy of Jill Jonnes book Eiffel’s Tower. Please email no more than four photos to r.nahem at gmail.com
Sorry but I will only accept entries from the U.S. (Publisher won’t shop book internationally).
All photos must be received by May 26 and I will announce the winners on May 28.
Good luck and I look forward to receiving your photos.
Below are a few of my Eiffel Tower images to inspire you.
