The photo was taken on Bastille Day in Paris with the french family Desch. Chris Desch worked at Morgan in New York City and we became friends. I visited him on this trip before I was married. This was the most exciting photo of the tweleve rolls of film shoot on the trip. The photo was suggested to me by his daughter as we walked away from the tower. I placed the camera on the ground to steady the shot, and pointed it and hoped for the best.
