They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes there is more to a photo than what you see. This is Behind The Photo where we explore the story behind the shot, from why we took the picture to interesting history and tidbits of the subject.
Arc de Triomphe
Everyone has seen the famous Arc de Triomphe, even if they don’t know the name of it. It’s one of the most recognizable monuments in Paris. But what many people might not know is that it is in the middle of a massive roundabout. A pretty hectic one at that. So you may be wondering, how do you get to the other side? No, you don’t play a real-life version of Frogger. (I mean, you can if you want that type of thrill…) There is actually a tunnel that goes under the crazy traffic so you can safely reach the other side and look at the architectural marvel.
Fun Fact: Notice the lack of traffic lines. Eeks! I’d hate to try and drive in that!
