Changing Faces....

No, you're not looking at some bizarre combination of the Seattle Space Needle and the Eiffel Tower, neither have aliens landed on top of one of the world's most famous landmarks; this is actually how the Eiffel Tower is going to look after Serero's observation deck is mounted on the top floor to mark the Tower's 120th Anniversary. I'll say it now that it's only a temporary installation, so no outcries about how the Tower is being defaced please (unless that is your opinion about the temporary deck too). I'm not quite sure how I feel about this really - it's not really as aesthetically pleasing with the observation deck, and I think pictures from the top will definitely be less dramatic with the metal 'netting' in the way...it's not in keeping with the Eiffel Tower's clean lines either but I think I'll reserve judgement until its actually finished.
