The Patterns of the Eiffel Tower

I was in Paris with my brother, who visited the city for the first time, so of course we had to pass by the Eiffel Tower. 

These days I'm on the outlook for great geometric shapes and the Eiffel Tower gives great inspiration.  First, the shape of its tower itself, but look closer and you'll see many other great twists and twirls. Have a look at the various sized beams that form part of its construction and its nice patterns of the lower bows. They did indeed know their handicrafts and designs back then!
