Photographer's Note

Not to far from the Eiffel tower, just at the other end of the park lies the school building Ecole Militaire. Here it forms a background for the transparent part of the peace monument I showed you before. The text on the glass is the word, or signs, for peace written in many languages.

According to my guide book the Ecole Militaire was built in the 1750΄s on request of madame Pompadour. Its policy was to educate young boys who had good chances of becoming officers. One well known name among its students are Napoleon.

I pressed my minitripod against the wall of the monument and took this picture. The text is my main motive and I like to have the Ecole a bit out of the DOF. In the middle is a curved golden vertical, what can it be? And to prove the location even more the Tricolor is on its pole.

Edit: I forgot to say that this is the backside of the glass and the text is backwards, "Vagabond" corrected this in his WS. But I remember that there was a wind from the south that day... ;o)
