Place de la Concorde, 11:30 am, January 2007
It was cold and hazy with just a little sun breaking through.  I positioned the obelisk in relation to the lamppost in the right foreground and the mirage-like Eiffel Tower in the distance, then waited for the traffic to clear before taking the shot.  The result was a picture that looks as if it could have been taken in the mid-20th century.  I got lucky with the details -- note how the four figures at the left are walking in unison.
