On my recent trip to Europe I had less than 24 hours in Paris. There were two things I wanted to photograph while I was there - the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. The problem with photographing the latter, is that it's located in the center of a giant and busy roundabout, so getting a photograph without cars obstructing the view was nearly impossible. After about 10 minutes of waiting I almost gave up hope, but then the traffic cleared and for about 15 glorious seconds there were zero cars in the roundabout. The cars you can see to the right of the photo were just parked there, inconveniently. But I’m still happy with what I was able to get!
