Sunday Jigsaw Puzzle - Eiffel Tower at Dusk

In June of 2000 the Eiffel Tower was lit to display the year.  Perhaps it is always lit up with the year, but this was Y2K, the year of the new millennium, and it seemed rather amazing to be at the cusp of such a moment in time.  Now it is June of 2010 and we are moving steadily through the 21st century.  I remember reading the Sunday newspaper on New Year's Day of 1950 and feeling amazed to be at the midpoint of the 20th century.  But then I was 9 and amazed by a lot of things.  I am grateful to say that at 69 I am still capable of being amazed.

Lovely shot of the iron lady ;-)

A little piece of trivia for you: did you know that the Eiffel tower at night is copyrighted? That's right, you can take pictures of it during the day but not at night, since the lights etc. are property of a company. Weird, eh? Not that I'm going to tell them ;-)

I understand that the little 'Happy Birthday to You' song that we have been singing all our lives is also copyrighted. We may all go to jail.
