I love the simplicity of the monument, but so very apt. Beautiful silhouette shot, JM!

What a wonderful study in contrasts today and the silhouette against the blue sky. Good one JM!

This is grand, JM! I like the structure's simple shillouette against the blue sky ... Very nice.

Jules said...

You have really nailed this JM!!! The angle of the shot and how it is silhouetted against the sky enhances the power of the monument!!!!

JM,
To answer your comment the "soccer" ball is a turquoise color, not the usual BW variety to I can see how you didn't notice. Peter will guest blog on my Paris blog tomorrow. Come see his nice photos.
