What is it? Writers aspire to describe things in ways that give readers  an Aha! moment  – a new phrase or word that flips our expectations and makes us go, “Yes, that’s exactly what an orange looks, tastes, feels, smells like.” Post pictures, text, video (or whatever) of a person, place, or thing to help us look at it in a new way.

Today: The Eiffel Tower

This is a quick video I took of the Eiffel Tower in July 2009. I wish I could say this was on purpose. That a higher artistic principle was at work. That, like Picasso, I have a unique skewed view of the world.

Sadly, that would be a LIE. I really thought I could turn the camera while recording video and have it work the same way. That laugh you hear is me realizing what a total horse’s ass I am.

So here is a “flipped” view of the Eiffel Tower in the most literal sense.
