A Piece of Paris~The Eiffel Tower

Hello lovelies! It's Ginny. :D I have rather missed commenting and such the past few weeks, so I'm glad to be back, and so is June! We both had the flu after Christmas break, so we weren't jazzing on posting at that moment. Anyway, I have decided to begin a short series inspired by Grace Thomas! I love Grace, but am not planning to get her, so I thought I would instead represent her theme through six photo shoots with the gals. I have decided to call it "A Piece of Paris," and each of the six shoots will have a theme to it. :D They are all Paris/French culture themed, and each one will have specific aspects to them. :) I love French culture, and am loving learning French, so this definitely represents my personality quite well.

So the first photo shoot is based on the Eiffel Tower, and is done with Marie-Grace. Grace and Cecile are my French dolls, so they will be starting and ending this series. Also, with this series, I'm going to give a bit of history about each of the themes (if they have one). Not a horribly large amount, just a bit. :)

The Eiffel Tower was built from 1887 to 1889 in Paris, France by Gustave Eiffel. He was the same man that designed and helped to build the Statue of Liberty, France's gift to the United States in the early 1800's. Soon after it was built, the tower was ridiculed by the people of France. They believed that the enormous, metal structure in the middle of the city was too much of an anomaly, and frankly was ugly. Nevertheless, the Eiffel Tower has become a symbol for Paris, and for France as a whole. It has become one of the most well known structures in the world.
