Montparnasse Tower Paris - Black & White

Paris was stormy and windy the day I shot this photo of Tour Montparnasse. The black and white enhances the contrast in tones between the glass windows, the metallic structure and the cloudy sky.

It is unusual to see this type of architecture in the center of Paris. It contrasts which the surrounding buildings and the view from the top of the tower is gorgeous.

Montparnasse Tower is located in Paris 15th arrondissement; it was designed by architects Eugène Beaudouin, Urbain Cassan, Louis Hoÿm de Marien and Jean Saubot. The tower was completed in 1973 with a height of 689 feet and was the tallest skyscraper in France until 2011.
