Photographs of the Eiffel Tower

The monument dominates Paris and photographing it can become a little addictive. New light, new angle, new season will all prompt me to reach for my camera.
I guess there are more photographs of it than any other landmark in Paris. France is number one in the world tourism rankings so I guess you can assume it’s the world’s most photographed monument? Anyone dispute this made-up fact?
The difficulty is producing unique photographs, although I think clichè is sometimes OK.
The French refer to it as la Tour Eiffel. When it was first erected the locals were very vocal about their dislike for the monument. It was intended as a temporary structure designed to show the world France’s abilities in structural design and engineering.
